Matching Your Paint to the Pages of This Old House
This Old House Editors give advice on matching paint
Can you tell me the colors and brand of paint in the laundry room on page 17 of the April 2014 issue? —Paula Huff, Lakeview, Ark.
We get these requests all the time from readers who fall in love with a color they've seen. Even where we do pinpoint the maker and hue, the variation in printing and the light in your room will likely result in confounded expectations.
Here's a safer approach: Take the page to a paint store and find paint chips that match. The store can then mix up samples for you to test at home.
