I need some help finding a light grey color for my bathroom. I have tried several colors but they are way too dark. Any suggestions would be appreciated. We do have a True Value store here so I could match other brands. Thank you in advance.

  • Pick up a small can of gray and some white paint and keep mixing to you get the light color your looking for. put it on some cardboard or a small piece of wood Then simply take a sample of that so they can color match it.

      @Woodbridge Environmental Tiptophouse.com That's a really good idea. I will try that. Thank you.

    Look at a Benjamin Moore color chart. They have some lovely greys!

    I like revere pewter it's a ben moore color...we used it in our master bedroom. I have some pictures in this post where you can get an idea of what it looks like on the walls. http://www.twoityourself.com/2013/10/i-spy-diy-7-master-bedroom-ideas.html

      @mt I almost bought revere pewter but I went with Metropolitan. I have seen Revere Pewter in some different pics and really liked it however they didn't have a sample swatch of it but they did have one of Metropolitan. Maybe I will use it for the spare room.

    We just painted our bathroom with Behr Pensive Sky. It is a very light neutral color that looks grey, blue or green depending on the light or time of day. It is a very light, soothing, calming color. Instead of buying sample cans of paint to try, instead take 4 paint samples from the color rack, take them home and tape them together and tape them on the wall to be painted. It's a much cheaper way to see the color in the light of your own home. Good luck!

    Take the paint samples at the store out of the bright florescent light into a darker area to see who they will look inside your regular lit room.
