Archimedes once said, “Give me a paint brush large enough, and I will probably leave some drips on your floor.” Prevent sloppy work from ancient mathematicians by doing it yourself with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Parker Paint and Master Choice supplies at Parker Paint, which has 27 area locations.
The largest manufacturer and supplier of paints in the Pacific Northwest, Parker Paint enables new-hue-craving customers to roll and brush fresh coats of luscious pigments onto formerly drab and dreary household surfaces. To reinvent interiors, several options await including the semigloss Wall Glow ($34.27/gallon) and the Velva Kolor ($30.59/gallon), with a less-reflective eggshell finish. Parker Paint also carries a selection of weather-scoffing exterior paints, such as the flat-finish Flextron 100 ($33.03/gallon) to help homeowners paint a realistic yet unflattering outdoor mural of the neighbors.
With more than 1,600 colors, painters will find it nearly impossible to settle, like a bowl of JELL-O during an earthquake. Take advantage of the handy visualizer to narrow choices and forecast what color schemes should be applied to what room, such as aquamarine themes for the exotic-fish room, bright primary colors for the inflatable fire escape, and a variety of yellows for a basement filled with antique butter churns.
