New color. "Parchment." Pardon the awful paint job. I cranked it out quickly to see how it looked. I haven't tried anything but various grays so far. Guess I've been stuck on the Hermann-Grima house with its gray windows.


I think this looks better. Thanks jrchob for the suggestion. Thoughts?

Better! Maybe more of a creamy color, that has a bit of yellow.

That is funny you say that because it was the least yellow off-white I have, lol. I skipped light buttermilk, ivory, and... ugh, I'd have to go look again. "Devonshire Cream" or somesuch. They were really yellow. I'll see if I can find a better off-white. So many are either yellow-y or beige. :/

OH! I just realized what yellow we're seeing! This color is one of the worst I've ever painted with. No coverage at all. I'd likely have to do three coats if I used this. The yellow tone of the wood is showing through. I'm comparing my off-white paints side-by-side. In the bottle, this one doesn't have a yellow tinge. I'll try another coat (or two!) later and see if that helps.
