I need to buy some limewash paint for my house and would quite like to choose a colour rather than just plain cream/white. Only thing is, they charge £6 for a colourchart !!!!!!!!!! I really don'twant to pay £30 for a 10 litre tin of paint without seeing the colour on a chart first.
I don't suppose anyone has a buxton limewash colourchart I could borrow ??
Thanks very much.

My nameless friend told everyone her new bathroom was painted in Bradstock by Farrow & Ball (as in the Dorset beach Burton Bradstock) but it Crown ha ha ha !

Thanks, I do love farrow & ball but it needs to be limewash to go onto the lime render we've got. Guess i'll just have to fork out the £6 for the colour chart.

Ah, I know why the chart was cheaper ....... the paint itself is twice the price !! Back to the drawing board !
