Sorry it took so long to post. I couldn't find my memory card reader. This is after two coats of the Cloverdale Paint.

Looks red, not purple. Is that the color youwere shooting for?

It's definitely not the color I originally chose but I am starting to like it. I think when I get my next paycheck I will buy some more paint and put one more coat on so it's a bit darker and then finish the other walls to match.

Default Interior vs exterior paint colors

Actually, interior paints are a different formula from exterior paints so the tinting formula is likely slightly different. The refractory index may also be different which can also appear to change the color a bit. So technically, the clerk may have been right when he said he couldn't tint it.

Having said that, an experienced tinter would have been able to make any small adjustments to get it really close...however you generally don't find them at Home Depot. Which is why I prefer not to use Behr paint. It's the quality of the support staff, not so much the paint itself (although I do prefer some other brands better).

Hey here's a tip for painting with deep reds and the like.

I use a base coat tinted battleship grey (or perhaps slightly darker) but any medium grey will do. For whatever reason the grey seems to help get rid of that "blotchiness" and ehlps give a nice uniform coat.

Try it some time and see what you think. It's worked for me for years.

This is for future readers, i know the post is old.
No offense intended, your actual application of the paint with your roller was pretty poor. You can see from your original two coats picture that you kinda just slapped it on and rolled it with very little paint on the roller cover. Instead of trying to maximize the amount of area you can cover per roller dip, make sure you get lots of paint onto the roller, and paint the wall in smaller sections. You should also be back rolling a bit to help even out the coat get rid of paint lines. Even with a poor paint, two coats should have looked much better then that, you should spend a few minutes researching how to propperly mask, trim and roll a wall.
