I saw a picture of a wall painted Flagstone grey from Olympic, but I don't have a Lowes near me. I only have Benjamin Moore and I pulled out all the grey cards but don't know which one would be similiar? Thanks.

BM store should be able to match competitor colors.

Hey Brush! How's it goin'?!? are rarely exactly what they are in-situ!!!

You're at the mercy of the printing process, etc.
Ask your nearest Lowes to mail you the relevant card. It's the only way to know for sure.

I had a customer last year bring in a magazine ad with some paint colors referenced on the page, complete with color #'s, sample-square, etc.
Wasn't really close at all to the "real-life" paint chip!!

(She seemed surprised....!)
