Is there a problem with using exterior paint inside? Found a 5 gallon miss mixed paint, reg. $124 for $35 at Lowes.
I know you wouldn't use interior paint outside but what about exterior inside?
I don't mind coming to work. But that 8 hr. wait to go home is a drag.
There may or may not be issues with doing so. The cost savings would not tempt me to chance it. Labor (prep and application) is the hard part of the painting project, so I will always spring for the quality/appropriate paint.
Years ago we used exterior trim paint on a bathroom door, and it was fine. Trim exterior paint often has a hard sheen/coating/finish. By contrast, Flat exterior paint is often made to chalk off in the rain/weather and many now have an added mildewcide that can give off odors, so I would probably pass on it, and get a proper interior paint.
Not an expert on paint but cannot think of a reason why it would not work. I say go for it. It is only paint.
Years ago, I used exterior paint for my family room. I had two little boys at the time, and wanted something that I could scrub. Worked very well. Just make sure there isn't any lead in the paint.
Everyone has different experiences doing this, and it can sure depend on the paint and ingredients in it.
I did an on line search and came up with probably more No's than Yes's? I would do your own search before using it.
Never was a fan of Bob Vila, but you might do a check below?
Exterior paint might have a higher VOC content and therefore stronger and longer lasting odor problems when used in a confined interior space.
It is difficult to use the exterior paint inside, it leaves little stronger smelling until it dries but water based paints aren't that smelly these. You can take the help of painting contractors for exterior paint inside.
