When I was searching for the most perfect white paint on Earth for my ceilings, I kept coming up short. Out of all of my fan decks, the colors were just not quite white enough. They were too yellow, too blue, too gray. It made me feel like the Goldilocks of white paint.
I knew that a lot of people bought white paint straight off the shelf. I considered going that route, too, until one of my favorite paint mixologists (I know that’s not a real thing, but I like calling them that) at Home Depot suggested that I add some colorant into the white base to bind the paint. Otherwise, it likely wouldn’t cover very well since it would be slightly transparent. So, we decided to add 1 ounce of white to the already white paint. Why? We just thought it sounded right. I mean white.
