Old White

Old White 4.8 5 16 16
excellent product I will recommend this paint to everyone! It is excellent. Lovely colour August 9, 2014
Fabulous Colour After much deliberation I decided on Old White for my Kitchen. I'm so glad I chose it!! It looks sophisticated and has given my quite traditional oak kitchen a 'contemporary' edge. Depending on the light and time of day, it changes between grey, green and a buff brown colour. As always, F&B paint is lovely to work with. August 6, 2014
I have been asked to write a review about this paint. It's paint. It goes on the wall. You can get it onto the wall with a tool called a paintbrush, or a different tool called a roller. Then you wash your brush or roller in water and stand back and look at the paint. Quite possibly your wall is now a different colour to the one it was before you started. It is to be hoped that you like the colour, or you will need to use more paint to get it to a colour you do like. It's paint. June 14, 2014
Love it After much deliberation have gone for old white. Superb. First experience of F&B. I have a Victorian north facing living room which can appear dark and cold. Used the recommended undercoat and 3 coats of old white. I painted using a brush and a roller. V little splatter if any. Easy to Apply. Also suprisingly economical as used just over half. Extremely impressed. Room looks warm and sophisticated. Highly recommended. Now can't wait to paint my dining room!! May 27, 2014
excellent paint, easy to apply we used this on the windows and doors of our summer house. An excellent finish. Dries very quickly so don't use in full sun. May 9, 2014
Absolutely Gorgeous... This was my first encounter using F&B paints which I used it to update some furniture. Its a beautiful which seems to change throughout the day.... the results are exquisite and its an absolute pleasure to paint with a bit pricy by well worth it...! I cannot wait for my next project... the only downside is choosing which colour to use next...! (Clock painted in Light Grey) April 20, 2014
More green than white it's a great colour adds character This product has a green brown grey look to at wasn't sure if I liked it at first but has made my hall look like a grand hotel reception area February 25, 2014
Brilliant transformation! Like many other contributor's, I hunted high and low for the perfect paint colour and eventually decided on a calming, 'neutral', sagey green. I spent a small fortune on tester pots, and I saw this on a friend's wall and immediately fell in love with the shade. I agree, it is more expensive than other manufacturers, but I am delighted with the end result now it is on the walls and am pleased I payed the extra as the quality certainly shows. I used Light Grey as a contrast on the chimney breast, but to be honest there is little contrast, so I think I will try Mouse's Back instead. My room once looked stark and bare, and now looks warm welcoming and homely. September 29, 2013
