The Cross House
So, yesterday I did a post about how I was FREAKING OUT about the exterior wall color of the Cross House.
I had received scientific confirmation about the original 1894 color. And this matched a Duron color chip: 8194 Capertree. (Duron was taken over by Sherwin-Williams years ago, but SW could match the color.)
I then picked up a sample quart, and painted some on the house.
And it was WAY off from the color I have been using since 2014.
I just felt knocked down.
So, one thing is now certain.
What Sherwin-Williams mixed was wrong. I went to the store today and they agreed it was wrong, but had no explanation.
To resolve this, Frank graciously agreed to send me a bit of the color chip. Sherwin-Williams can then computer match this, and I should, after much ado, finally know exactly what the original exterior wall color of the Cross House was.
Please ignore my hysteria yesterday.
