After painting the town red, unruly teenagers tend to sober up the moment they realize that only some of the sidewalks will be used during upcoming awards ceremonies. Add a splash of excitement to your next painting project with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of paint supplies, with half off all regular-price household paints, at Dunn-Edwards. This deal is valid at the locations in Scottsdale and Chandler.
With the dry Southwest climate in mind, the employee-owned Dunn-Edwards has been manufacturing paints and mixing up myriad kaleidoscopic colors for more than 85 years. Paint dabblers visit Dunn-Edwards for free expert color consultations with its resident interior designers, who help find the appropriate color combination for each individual's abode. Upon request, customers can also receive two free 8-ounce paint samples to try out on their walls.
For interior jobs, Dunn-Edwards carries a variety of paints and suggests brands such as Suprema available in flat ($11.72/qt., $43.13/gal.), velvet ($13.41/qt., $50.14/gal.), egg shell ($14.31/qt., $50.14/gal.), low sheen ($15.53/qt., $58.95/gal.), and semigloss ($15.65 qt., $59.17/gal.) finishes. For the exterior of client's personal palaces, the shop stocks brands such as Evershield, and quality primers include brands such as Ecoshield white primer ($31.58/gal.) and Apex wood primer ($38.70/gal.). The staff also guides customers toward the handiest tools and equipment, and provides advice on techniques, paint quantity calculation, and which paints pair poorly with white or red wine.
Dunn-Edwards keeps one eye on the color wheel and the other eye on the environment by supplying paints manufactured using the lowest amount of energy and resources possible. This eco-efficient process is also backed up by the exclusion of potentially toxic elements, including ethylene glycol, which Dunn-Edwards removes voluntarily from all its water-based paints.
