    The finish on the walls is a concrete finish applied to the cinder block (in a plaster like fashion) and was original to the home. I am assuming this, but it looks like it was left to cure in it's natural state and was neither stained nor painted.
    As an alternative, I would suggest looking into Ralph Lauren Paints with the River Rock finish. It has a similar texture.
    Thank you for your question and interest. Kathryn - Normandy Builders.
