Paint it off white.  Use a subtle tint.  Find a off-whitish paint chip that you think will look good, and paint it one shade lighter.

White LIGHT is the presence of *all colors.  White PIGMENT is the absence of *all colors.

There is a significant difference.

* - "all" colors refers only to colors visible to the human eye.

Actually, no. White means it's reflecting all colors and black means it's absorbing all colors.

Isn't that the definition of what "color" something is? The type of light it reflects or emits? Is white light the presence of all colors?

Primering over the old paint will save  you tons of heartache after the job is finished.

Primer paint makes a much smoother and consistent color when you put your final paint down.

Sorry, but I believe that is incorrect.

White in addative (light) is all colors (red green and blue) evenly represented.

White in subtractive (paint/pigment) is all colors (red yellow and blue) evenly reflecting. (pigments reflect light back) Another way to look at it is that white paint is NOT absorbing any colors.

The difference is (as you can tell by the name) with light you add more color to something, so with an addition of more light, it will only ADD color/brightness.

With subtractive (paint) you are actually adding things that stop light from reflecting. Thus, you can never get a brighter color than the brightest color you are mixing together.

But you are right, white <font color=#888>gray</font> and black are neutrals, not colors. And I think brown in subtractive may be considered a neutral as well (since it is mixing two opposite colors)... but with any neutral, there is a VERY SLIM margin of error before you actually have a neutralish color rather than an actual neutral.

As a kid I was always confused about how projectors made the color yellow when it had three colors to mix: (red green and blue) Because I of course knew that the three primary colors were: red yellow and blue...
