    Is Behr Premium Direct to Metal Paint able to have colors added to it or does it come in other colors.
    I’m painting outdoor wrought iron table, chairs end table, coffee table, etc. and do not want white, cream
    red or black. Can it be tinted with another color at Home Depot if requested .
