    i got a sample of this dragon fire color from home depot (it's the one in the middle), along with a few other color samples. Decided i like the dragon fire best of the three top colors, but the nearest home depot is a hike away and lowe's doesn't carry it. i went to sherwin williams to have them match the color and what they came up with was the color on the very bottom. it's supposed to match the one right above it in the middle. lools. and i can't return it. and i tried having them fix it once and it only got more peach and less orange/red.

    Unfortunately those cocksuckers at Home Depot are crushing the paint marketplace......killing every bit of the competition for miles around.

    Was the guy mixing your paint colorblind, stupid, retarded, or all three?

    Get a gay man on the job over there......they never make errors with color.

    That sucks that the SW paint dude was incompetent. No way he should be that far off.

    BTW.....Dink that orange looks very close to the color that I wanted for my livingroom but my GF opted for a few shades lighter and I generally defer since it's not a big deal to me (usually). I'm dreading the painting project since there is lots of trim cutting in and the room is huge with vaulted ceilings. Priming new drywall today and paint tomorrow. :facepalm:

    yeah man i can't believe how far off he was. fucking idiot roman.

    i really like the orange. it has a reddish hue to it that makes it a little bolder than other oranges. i have all my other supplies, so maybe i'll tape up the trim and windows and ceiling today. i don't have huge peaks, but it is a 14" peak, which i'm not looking forward to painting. :(

    good luck with yours! post pics. :)
