How not to buy paint twice

Did you know that 40% of all paint sold is being purchased for a second time because of a color mismatch or the color wasn’t liked? Here are several things you can do prevent this from happening to you:
1. Never purchase paint based on a small paint chip. You need to see a MINIMUM of 8″ x 8″ of a color to see it’s color character or you’ll be in for a surprise (and not in a good way!)
2. Evaluate a color in the light of different times of day and in different weather conditions. Color changes throughout the day and looks different on a sunny day than it does on a cloudy or rainy day, really!
3. Don’t decide on a color when you’ve only seen it on one wall. If you purchase a tester, paint it on an inexpensive white poster board that can be moved around and evaluated on different walls before you decide.
I’m here to help if you need it so don’t hesitate to contact me if you do!
