We are getting ready to paint our living room. I stopped into my local Sherwin Williams store this morning to get some paint chips to put up on my wall to try to live with the colors for a few days. As I was speaking with the gentleman who worked there, he told me that I should try to buy my paint this weekend as they were having a sale – 40% off of EVERYTHING!
I told him that I didn’t know if I would have the color determined by that time or not and he told me I didn’t have to. He said I can buy my paint base without having it tinted – and save 40% a gallon. Then, when I determine the color, I take the gallon back to the store and they will tint it for me for free! He also advised me that if I bought too much paint and didn’t need it, they would allow me to return the base paint (untinted of course) for a full refund!
I was shocked! Even though I do not know for certain the shade of paint I want, I am definitely stopping by on Friday to get all of the things I need. Just another way to save on your projects!
So the next time your store has a hot deal on paint, ask your store about buying the base without tinting and then hang onto it and go back for tinting later on.
