Old White

No. 4  

Old White 4.6 5 19 19
Great colour Lovely colour on an old Geogrian property. Easy product to use October 14, 2014
disappointed with the finish. I ordered exterior Old White for our front door. The vestibule it leads into has been painted in Pointing on the woodwork and Old White emulsion on the walls, and I was extremely pleased with the result of that. We decided to paint the front door in Old White and ordered some exterior finish for the task. However, the Old White on the outside of the door does not match the colour on the walls, it is very much paler. We are very disappointed with this, and can't afford to do anything other than live with it, as we have spent a fortune on this paint already. I wonder if we could have got a closer match with Dulux heritage colours October 4, 2014
elegant and old I bought Old White as a sample to compare with Clunch as a unifying wall color for my relatively small house (c. 1875). Both colors were elegant on the wall. Old White was darker and seemed to absorb more light; it was perhaps better suited to an even "older" situation. Clunch was more reflective, more "energetic" and appeared to be the more adaptive of the two. August 31, 2014
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
