Morning all,

I am in the midst of a garden office build and the wife has found a colour she wants for the outside cladding .

This happens to be a grey/greeny colour from the B&Q Valspar range called Secret Retreat which has a code X139 and R273C .

I am going to be using Jotun Demidekk paint, however the suppliers can only colour code to RAL or BS colours and do not support any of the Valspar codes.

Any one got any ideas how I can convert. I don't trust on screen colours as they seem to vary so much.

Given that I am ordering 10 litres of paint which will be £130 I am wanting to get the colour right !!!

it's obviously there own colour & not a Ral or will have to try and match as near as possible..You could possibly buy tester pots of the colours then paint them onto some paper and see if they can scan them to match as close as can be.
