If you’re looking at HD or Lowes, see if they’ll let you take a door to the paint department for a color match. I suspect that the orange peel texture will be harder to match than the color. – lol

Cab 4 , I think I know what your talking about and you may be able to use purlite or like type additive to the paint to achieve that texture.
