Pale Powder

No. 204  

Pale Powder 5 5 25 25
first time using F&B paint but will definitely be using it again, very happy with the quality Currently painting wooden furniture (a dresser and two bookcases) and am very happy with the results. Primed with F&B primer/undercoat in light tones followed by two coats of Pale Powder eggshell. Using rollers I have found the coverage to be excellent and the finish is a beautiful pale green with a very slight blue cast depending on the light. 11 November 2014
Yet another success ! We revamped our Bathroom , originally we planned to change 3 brown Storage cupboard doors but decided to paint them. Pale powder is a lovely blue/ green and depending on the changing light deepens or lightens accordingly. We used undercoat primer for light shades and then 2 coats of top coat . So inspired we carried on to paint the bath and sink panels .The room looks lovely so fresh and up to date. 10 August 2014
Lovely but weird! So, I chose this colour (along with Light Blue) because I wanted a very pale blue-green. It was described as greeny on the website and in customers' reviews so I bought a matchpot. I painted samples on various walls and all of them looked a very pale sky-blue. As I couldn't find another colour I liked, in the end I decided to take a punt and buy this colour. When you paint a whole wall, it turns green!! At one point I was looking at a wall of it and it was green, then looking at the next wall which still only had a matchpot-sized patch and that still looked blue! My decorator said that even if he painted round the 'blue' patch rather than over it, it still turned green #so it wasn't a case of the matchpot and the large pot being different#. So a very weird but lovely colour. 29 July 2014
Colour seems pale blue I used this colour for an East facing bedroom. Whilst pretty it is definitely a pale blue. The painter has used 2coats but is coming back to do a third as despite a white undercoat ,the finish is not as good as the other colours used to date. I am hoping it will look more green as per the other reviewers. 07 July 2014
Elegant shade of green Classy, elegant shade of pale green perfect for a dark hallway. 06 June 2014
Beautiful colour I was looking a classic blue/green colour and this is stunning. It has transformed our living room. It is not dark and it does change tones depending on how much light is coming in the room. Sometimes it can look greener. It has been the perfect choice. Also we painted onto a dusty pink colour and did not need an undercoat. Two coats was enough to cover. It is a quality paint, expensive but worth it. 25 April 2014
Warm blue colour which works well in bedrooms. I used this colour in 2 bedrooms, and it gives a lovely warm feel, and matches my duck-egg blue coloured curtains beautifully. 01 April 2014
The painted house Used this colour to paint the front of my Victorian cottage - along with Dix door and gate - and it's beautiful. The colour changes according to the light and time of day. Even in winter, it's uplifting. Lovely colour. 22 March 2014
