What white to use? Sign In/Join 
I would like to paint a shelf I bought a whitish colour. I don't want to use a bright white but more of a off white/ almond.
Can someone recommend a colour to me that they have used.

Thank you

I have worked with good old SW antique white.. but not at full color... I went to 70%.So find something that appeals to you then work from there...

If it was my project, I'd probably start at BM's Pale Almond and then move down the paint chip to whatever shade of white suited my purpose.

You s/b able to find some version of a pale almond in any paint brand you prefer, BTW.

Good Luck!
