Yes, it is tricky. You want to test the color but not make a whole bunch and waste each time. SO, write down measured out proportions and then test. If you like it, make a big batch right away. You can only do water based first and then oil based on top. Never the opposite. It shouldn't yellow especially if indoors and is good quality. Good luck!

Shabby Nest never gets it right. Maybe just let the designer answer.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

And you might be asking, "are all trusses pitched?" Well, as this example attest, the answer is clearly "no." (To go into even more detail, technically all trusses are pitched at least a 1/4" per foot to allow for drainage on flat roofs.) Ironically these flat-roof trusses, gray with prominent grain, are more rustic than the previous examples.

3. Benjamin Moore, the powerhouse of the paint industry, now offers two green options: Aura, a low-VOC premium paint, and Natura, which is zero VOC and has a short drying time to boot. Big bonus: The entire staggeringly large range of Benjamin Moore colors is available in either ecofriendly option. When I was pregnant we used Benjamin Moore's Natura line to repaint most rooms in our house, and I can attest to the fact it is virtually odor free and dries fast. The coverage was good, but not as amazing as the next on our list, C2 Paint.Cost: $54.99 (Natura), $65.99 (Aura) per gallon
