    Hi
    I wanted to know I recently moved in to find this color IMG_20220713_201946.jpg

    The problem im facing the housing have done some works before I moved in they used wall filler there are some white patches white I want to paint over if I can find the right color.

    Do you guys think this is cornflower white it's has a shade of grey bluish color more towards the bluish side which matches the paint in the flat.

    Simple...ask the 'housing' who did the work.

    It's not the housing who painted this it was left by the previous tenant they tried to paint the wall but couldn't match to the one the previous tenant painted as I found there are several paint marks In the living room.

    I will just go with cornflower white lets see it looks like near match or could be the same one who knows until I paint

    The shade of white you are looking for will only be as accurate as our individual monitors can display. I'll bet we're all looking at varying tints of bluey or yellowey etc versions! Crown Sail White is possible (on my monitor)!

    This is the right color cornflower white that the previous tenant painted im lucky to find the right color paint that the previous tenant painted it will need just one coat as I don't want to just paint over the white wall filler patches as you can see the brush strokes just need to even it out paint who walls or go over the patches few times if possible so it matches the current paint.
