With summer on its last legs, now is the ideal time to throw open the windows and get home-care projects underway. Pick up some spray paint for $3.49 or a utility knife for $4.99. Illuminate your bathroom with a 4-pack of Ace light bulbs ($1.79), the better to see by as you caulk ($2.29) your sink. If you need to match paint to a favorite coverlet or choose a hue that complements a pleather recliner, each store offers a paint-matching service free of charge. Get keys made, or clean a barnacle-encrusted carpet with the help of a carpet-cleaning machine (rental prices vary). If you need help finding anything, Ace's knowledgeable staff is available to help get you in and out and on to your next project.
PPG Porter Paints' team has dedicated 90 years to sprucing up homes with its revered brand of vivid, low-odor paints, stains, and primers. Multiple lines and sheens of interior paint offer to protect walls from presidential portraits painted in mustard ($25.79+/gal.). Eco-conscious shoppers can snag gallons of Pure Performance color, designed to thwart mold and mildew without angering Mother Nature's overprotective rottweiler ($33.39+/gal.). Peruse exterior paints if looking to prevent al fresco fortifications from cracking and peeling during super-soaker season ($25.79+/gal.). Effective on most surfaces, Porter's acrylic, synthetic, and alkyd Seal Grip primers also help house-wide paint jobs to stay put ($40+/gal.). Amicable staff members roam each locale's voluminous aisles and are eager to provide product recommendations for any home, office, or abandoned grain silo.
The color connoisseurs at Don West Painting boast more than 35 years of experience transforming dull walls into dynamic canvases. Armed with their own brigade of supplies, the tint aficionados deftly apply coats of Porter or Sherwin-Williams paint furnished by the homeowners to a room measuring up to 12'x12', with ceilings no more than 10 feet high. Add some pizzazz to the den with hue reminiscent of your favorite jellybean, or give the home office a more dignified look with a chromatic covering that perfectly complements your Spider-Man briefcase. Don West's friendly fresco-ers can also paint trim, doors, windows, and ceilings for an additional fee, and two Groupons may be combined toward the painting of a larger room, if desired.
