Can this be used in kitchens and bathrooms?
Yes, but we do not recommend it for cabinets, unless you will be using a sealer over the top.
Why doesn’t the color match from the last time?
Because each batch is made from varying colors, we strive to match colors within a 5% variance. If you are unable to get the same batch number, if you start in a corner, most times the color difference will be indistinguishable. If you have touch ups, you may again want to paint corner to corner to avoid color variance.
If you are questioning how much you need, it is always better to buy more of the same batch number, as you can return unopened cans, but your supplier may not always have the same batch next time you come back.

Can the paint be tinted?
No, we do not tint the paint. However, if you have a good relationship with your hardware or paint store they may tint it for you, however, because it is recycled you may not get the color you think you will get. If you are concerned about exact color, you may want to purchase virgin paint.
