If now ur wall is dark color n u wan paint lighter color

Then a layer of cheapo white is better to get the actual shade

But if now urs is light n u wan dark

Jys paint direct

Save the white's $

If u stay ard Ubi

Get from homely hardware

If u elsewhere either u google or u let me know where

I can try recommend

Oh if original light

No need a coat of white light for old house

But some will stil paint a coat of white to get closer to the shade in the chart

Same logic as dye hair

But if new hse is diff

The ceiling is raw

Must apply a coat of cellar or wat I forgotten the name

The shop will know
