Paints Combined Into One

We have several different color paints in our garage. The other day, we decided to check them out one by one, to see if there are anything we can use to paint a bedroom wall. Unfortunately, none of the colors were satisfactory enough, paints were either too dark or too light. We even tested each paint in the wall, walls where we wanted to paint, to see how the color would appear if applied in the wall, but none of the paints worked. Most of the paints we have in the garage come from all different sources, some were leftovers from old painting projects, others were bought in the opps paint sections of stores that we couldnt resist the prices, while others were special orders with high prices but we changed our mind about the color and couldnt return the paint and decided not to use it. All different reasons how and why each paint ended up in the garage, in the effort to find a common ground and a use for it, since most of the paints have been stored for awhile unused, and who-knows-when we are going to really use it individually. We decided to mix some of the paints, the same type paints, all water-based, indoor and acrylic. We decided to combine the dark orangy color with the white and the cream ones, hoping to achieve a lighter version of the dark orange. In the end, we ended up with a nice lively peachy color, which we ended up using by painting it in the bedroom wall.

When you try to mix different colored paints, do make sure that they are the same types and classifications, to make sure that it will mix properly and not flake on you, etc.
