A home is a lot like a Rubik's cube—many people attempt to properly coordinate its shapes and colors, but few can do so without painting over the entire thing. Solve puzzling design problems with today's Groupon: for $40, you get $85 worth of paint with delivery and a color consultation from The Paint Drop. Paint trucks travel to residences within 30 miles of the 78232 zip code.
After homeowners schedule a visit online, The Paint Drop's trucks jet to their doors with gallons of Valspar pigments, as well as a swatch-slinging color expert who performs a complimentary one-hour consultation. Each consultant has a background as an architect or designer and guides projects with design advice, 8”x11” color sheets, and a color-matching tool to match décor accents and finger-paint stains with a specific hue. Once homeowner and consultant divine the best shades for the project, The Paint Drop vacuums rainbows from the sky to tint and mix the perfect hue inside their truck, churning out gallons of Valspar Medallion ($33.99–$39.99) and Valspar Elan ($45.99). DIY painters lacking in any other supplies can purchase from the truck's healthy roster of tools, never again reliving ancestral days of walking uphill both ways in the snow for a roll of painter’s tape.
