You could also buy a CD called Color@Home II from Glidden. They are available at The Home Depot for $5.97.

It will you allow to import a digital picture of your house and color it!

Great product - check it out!

Bring paint into hirshfields and a sample board so you can get the color of your stain to match.Don't just pick a color from a color chart 80% of the time it isn't right and you'll prolly hate the color choice.This way you see what you are getting and can change the tint if needed.Never pick a pre-mixed color unless you know for sure it is what you want.
