Hello Aedgington and welcome to the Community.


Paint manufactures are always trying to improve their paints by the change the chemical formulas.  When the formulas change often the paint codes will no longer match.  The best way to get a matching color is to bring in a sample of the paint or the can lid.  Home depot has a machine that can analyse the sample and create a match. 

Another approach is to go to the store and collect a variety of color chips that you think are close to the color you need.  Take them home and compare them to your house in the same natural light.  Once you have chosen a color you think is right you can also buy an 8oz. color sample to try at home.

Thank you for your inquiry and for shopping at the Home Depot.
