Dulux Rottnest Island

Its a light grey-blue,quite a nice colour really, bit dark for a small house but very nice in a large house. It doesn't send out any unwanted colors.

Project builders windows sometimes don't have rollers only plastic slides that you need to spray with silicone spray, if yours have these, upgrade if you can. Just a thought
