How do you make an adjustment layer use a hex value?

To help learn, I decided to paint my wall in Photoshop. I created a selection with the pen tool, new layer mask, new adjustment layer. I can use Hue/Saturation and change the colors. But what I can’t do is match a paint color exactly. For example, if I have this hex value, #6C6A66, how do I get the wall that color? If I do a color fill layer, it looks horrible, because well, it’s a fill layer, not an adjustment.
