    It's made by Rustoleum, the colour is called "Spruce Green #7737"

    I have like 4 cans of it in my room right now.

    I do most of my painting in my room. SHH!!! Mom doesn't know, hah. I'm really good with the rattle can, so there's no overspray hitting anything else in the room.

    The walls are white today, they were white 11 months ago

    That is a good match, however somtimes hard to find. I found that Orchard Supply Hardware carries it. Din'ent ever see it at Home Depot.

    I've had good luck with Lowes or Home Depot. Walmart never seems to have anything here.

    I've found that color to be good, but you HAVE to let it dry over night which is a damper to me cuz when I start on something I get right into it and dont want to stop for the friggin paint to dry.

    I found it in the "gheto Wal-Mart" here in Vegas, and I've found quite a bit of it in the Lowes on the good side of town
