What is the easiest way to color match paint?
I patched a few things in our new house and the old owners said they would leave all the paint…out of 20+ cans, this blue is not there. The entire kitchen to the right is the same blue.
We bought items to match this blue because we were going to keep it but I don’t know how to colour match it and if I can’t I’m just going to use the Stonington Grey that I already have a big pail of.
Sherwin Williams needs a sample at least about a quarter size. Cut it off somewhere and fix it when you’re done
SW paint specialist can match it with a small sample. Pics dont work due to lighting, pixels and auto correct on colors.
Your going to have to repaint the whole thing regardless because the paint wont be the exact match
I cut a top layer piece out of an area of the wall that’s highly visible and get Benjamin Moore to perfectly match the color and sheen every time.
Some people suggest taking a sample from a hidden area like a closet or behind a curtain, but paint fades over time from sunlight etc, and doing it this way tends to never match 100%. The big box stores only match it correctly 40% of the time MAYBE, while places like BM or Sherwin Williams does it right every single time.
Just repaint. New paint never looked the same as old paint when applied even if it is the same color
Remove a light switch cover or plug cover and see if you can get piece from one of those locations. I have taken a dime sized piece and they matched it..
