    The dulux mixer paints always turn out exactly in our experience. Mum always has them, although most of our house is like a creamy magnolia colour.

    My bedrooms paint is ace, grey and darker grey, and its EXACTLY like it was on the tin.

    We want pics of the finished article ;)

    We've just had all of our ceilings plasterboarded so I have to repaint the whole house. I fear change so I'm trying to match all of the colours that are already there. :rolleyes008: They are nearly all period colours.

    We had it done to repair the original lathe & plaster ceilings. I agree that the coving makes it look so much nicer.

    When we moved in our current house the ceilings were artexed and I swear the chap who did them was on some really bad acid trip! The designs were something to behold. Needless to say, they were skimmed very quickly.

    Yep, house is 102 so lots of repairs needed. Hence no WDW visits for a while. :(
