I was told that paint often dries a shade lighter than it appears on the paint chip, so I ought to pick a shade darker if I want the exact color on the swatch. Is this true?Yeah I hope thats not a good friend feeding you this info, because the truth is paint can look up to four times darker on the walls than on the swatch. A good way to try out a color is buy a quart and paint a file folder fold it with the paint inside in shadow and thats close to what you walls will come out like...but dont tell anyone, its a secret!
