Dulux Paint from UK

A favour to ask......
In order to avoid a major re-painting excercise, I need a can or two of genuine 'English' Dulux Apple White Rich Matt emulsion. Unfortunately, we've no plans to go back to the UK this year.
So....if there is anyone within a radius of 100km of Miramont de Guyenne who is taking a car over and back within the next couple of weeks, and has time/space, I'd be most grateful if you could bring some over. Quite happy to pick it up from wherever, whenever and to settle up however suits you

Re: Dulux Paint from UK

Well I'm going to say it....what it is wrong with French paint ?

I am a fanatic when it comes to painting and I have found after extensive 'painting' that the paint from Leroy wins hands down.

Mylands (British) is good. But that is a specialised paint.

Dulux....no. Smells like 'wee' as well after you have painted. So yes, nip down to Leroy and buy their 'haute couverage' white. You paint, and the wall goes white. It is that simple.

It really is all down to prep as well you know.

P.S, STAY away from Lidl paint.

And why is your selfie at 90 degrees ?

Maybe because the OP wants to match what's already painted? Hence the phrase-to avoid a major repaint. Lidl paint is fine-we've used it lots.

This company stocks Dulux and delivers to France - €10 for 3x5lts tins.

A friend in need's a pest. Get rid.

ALBF the original poster wrote

"In order to avoid a major re-painting excercise,"

It's not helpful to tell her about other kinds of paint or to mention a relatively new poster's photo.

Re: Dulux Paint from UK

No problem ;-) It's lovely to be on the receiving end of ALBF's wit and wisdom once again .....even if most of us know that French paint is overpriced c**p ;-) . The smell of pee will blend in nicely with the cats' contributions lol.
And well-spotted, everyone that read the OP thoroughly.....there are a lot of very high walls in this place, and the last thing I want to have to do is re-paint the whole lot! If push comes to shove then, yes, I'll use a delivery service.
Re. the avatar, I tried to correct the orientation several times without success so will just have to put up with a cricked neck for now :-) The emojis don't work, either......

KIS that cajal recommends are good and I've used them but unfortunately they don't do Apple White.

Just a quick update...it's sorted. Now, if anyone spots some paneer, that's the only other thing that I miss from the UK ;-)
