with the current project I have an interior stress skin wall with a circle door and I'm using the donage (10") from the wall and setting it in a concrete foundation wall form to pour the street side of the garden courtyard

I believe we made a special mix of paint for this door, however, Shermin-Williams has a paint color similar called Honorable Blue. I'll continue to keep my eyes out for you!
