    1. Hi Annie,

      You can take your phone to Home Depot or Lowe’s (or any paint store) and the employee can use a computer to match the paint perfectly. You may be able to find a match on a paint sample too.

  1. Thank You for the information I was wondering could I get you opinion on something we have a little place that is a little barn and the color is barn red we have white doors on it and I was wanting to change the door color do you thing the sage green would look good . Thanks in advance

    1. Hi Shiela!

      I love barns! They are so pretty, I would be careful combining green and red, it could come off as ‘Christmasy.’ Barn red has a lot of orange in it due to the iron oxide so it’s hard to accent (I guess that’s why they stick with white). If you do paint the doors green, I’d try to paint some other accent on the sides of the barn to pull it together.

      Hope that helps!

  2. this is so amazing! I’ve always loved this style but I’m starting to get into home decor myself now and I don’t know where to begin! thank you so much!!

  3. Hi,
    Is there anyone out there that would post a primitive paint colour chart to me please.
    I live in the UK and these colours are not available here but, if I had a colour chart I could get them mixed at my local DIY store. I love the colours and have taught myself to make some primitive items, hand-sewn or small painted items.
    I look forward to hearing from someone please ????

    Kind regards

    1. Hi Melanie
      I make country style furniture here in England including primitive style pieces. I know what you mean about getting hold of traditional milk paint colours here if you would like to get in touch i can give you one or two ideas about painting and ageing in the primitive style. wwwcottagecharacters.co.uk

  4. Thank you for all this information. I was never positive if I decorated in Country Primitive but this article confirmed it. Thanks for the DIY info. There are so many things I see and they are expensive and now I have the “directions” and Im going to jump on them. Thank you again for a very informative and interesting article.

  5. What an outstanding article. The best I’ve ever seen – including magazine pieces and books – on the definitions and elements of these styles.

    Well done!

  6. Wanted to comment and let you know I loved your article! It provides great “Down To Earth” information which I found extremely useful and inspirational! So many options to look at and now to go and do.. Thank you for the inspiration!
