Today I needed to paint a couple of small windows, in Benjamin Moore Atrium White like all our trim. Because I made searched from right to left and the quart can was at the left of the lineup, I made a fair survey of our paint holdings, at least those in standard Benjamin Moore trade dress. To summarize, we have a lot of white paint. Our holdings are largest in Cameo White, Decorator's White, and White Dove, amounting between them to five or six gallon cans. There is a gallon can of Corinthian White, and a quart can of Polar Ice, which I suppose must be a white. A couple of gallon cans of Moore's "Aura" line are probably White Dove.

Certainly I reached 20 without imagining that there was more than one thing called "white paint". I've learned better since.


  1. You have been painting windows as long as I have known you.

  2. Well, "since the memory of man runneth not to the contrary."
