    Why does the colour on a paint chart bear no resemblance to the colour in the tester pot......... :rolleyes008:
    By the time I've found the correct shade I won't have enough money left to buy the actual tins of paint! :(

    Not for the dining room. Problem is that I had that colour specially mixed 14 years ago and love it so much I haven't changed it since then. So now I can't just go out and buy the same colour...
    I may have to rip a bit of the wall out and take it to the mixing desk at B&Q. :D

    Good idea! We did that for our bathroom, and it turned out nicely!

    the dulux charts are pretty accurate when you have them mixed up...we just did the entire front room and the colours are good from the chart

    MP if you go to the Crown website you can order colour cards where they've used the actual paint. They are a good size card, about A5 so you can put them up to get an idea of how it will look. I chose our lounge colours this way.
