A fresh coat of paint can revitalize a living space, just as a fresh coat of face paint can kick off a legendary comeback during a chess match. Splash on an invigorating essence de paint with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of painting supplies at Ace Hardware in Cedar Park.
Ace Hardware’s DIY-savvy staff help home painters find all the gear and paint they need in one stop. Ace’s paint department stocks the setup and clean-up gear needed to transform a monochromatic storage closet into a kaleidoscopic smoking room. Guests can peruse the myriad colors and textures of Clark and Kensington and Benjamin Moore interior and exterior paints, saving time with Clark and Kensington's paint-and-primer ($25.99+) combo or opting for the popular Benjamin Moore flat ($38.99) and eggshell-finish ($44.99) wall coatings.
With paint at hand, prep the room with Frog Tape, quarantining wood trim, glass windows, and metal appliances ($6.99–$10.99). Washable and reusable 9’x12’ heavy canvas drop cloth ($27.99–$33.99) safeguards floors and vintage Victorian fainting couches. Wall-tickling tools such as the thin, soft filaments of the Pro Series paintbrush create the minimal brush strokes ($7.49–$21.99), and a roller set glides over surfaces like a figure-skating stick of butter ($14.49).
