Hey this is my freshly painted white living room.

I used white color paint and added a few drops of black paint to get the desired effect - as you see in the picture it is not completely white, but is somewhat grey or dirty white.

A friend of mine that is an artist helped me with the mixing.

I didn't want a stark white, so the result was fantastic, even better than I wished. I didn't have to buy any paint because I already had 2 gallons of white ceiling paint sitting in the garage.

But I wouldn't recommend that you do it yourself, because it's easy to make a mistake and ruin the paint. Better call someone who knows how to paint and mix colors.
