Making Antique White Paint from White Paint?

If I add some brown paint to white paint will I have a nice antique white for my farmhouse projects?

Thanks.

Normally to make antique white paint out of just white paint you will add a tint of black to the paint to make it a greyish antique color but if you want a creamy antique white color you would add yellow to the paint. If you want the brownish color you can add a few drops of brown to the paint or some stain. I would work with the stain if you have it but if you don't the brown should work well for you. Just start off with a few drops at a time and mix well until you reach the color you want.

It takes very little of color to do this. Try small amounts of color and decide if you like the shade. Add accordingly!

The exact amount to add will be the tricky part so maybe it would be a good idea to go to a store that sells a lot of paint and ask for advice.
Ace Hardware has a tremendous paint department and you can pick out the exact antique white that you want (they have color cards and a computer program) and they can tell you the amount of color you will need. They also sell colors in small containers for just this purpose.
