Please keep in mind that electronic devices and monitors have inherent limitations that can result in a discrepancy in the exact appearance of color shades. We can recommend beginning with an 8 oz. sample container of the color you choose and applying it to a small area to ensure your satisfaction with the color choice. It is always a good idea to try a small sample on the wall or hang up a paint color swatch to see how the light affects the color at different points in the day.
We thank you for taking the time to email us and wish you well on your future projects.
