I am trying to figure out which paint to use to paint my concrete basement walls. The masonry paint instructions say that it needs to be 50 degrees and well ventilated. It is about 20 degrees outside but about 50 in the basement and i can't ventilate because of the cold. Can i use anything else?

Most all interior paints is going to require the temperature to be 50 F or warmer. Maybe you just crack the window while you are painting, open briefly every few minutes, then closing to warm up, staying upstairs inbetween times until it dries then opening for a few minutes to air out, if you got a quality masonary paint then stick with that working with the windows and temp to allow to dry and air out.

There are lower temp paints, but they are more expencive and generally are exterior paints.

Hope this helps.
