Hi Jeff,

I can relate. We have more cans of cast-off paint colors in the garage than I care to count. My wife is putting me through the ringer now on grout colors.

For anyone else who has not grouted and is uncertain about finished color: I set a 1 foot square scrap of hardibacker with scraps of the two shades of tile we used. Then we grouted this sample with the colors of grout we liked. I figured it was worth a few $12 bags of grout to see what it looks like before we grouted two bags worth. I've seen the color change before.

I will report back in my "countertop height" thread on blending two colors of grout to get the desired shade.
