I want to improve the look of some blockwork walls that have been used to extend an old stone garage at the house I have just bought. Any thoughts on what the best approach to this would be appreciated. Slapping on some stone-coloured exterior paint seems the simplest, but will leave the obvious shapes/joints of the blockwork showing. Is rendering, then painting, better in the long run?
