**the prices reflected are definitely sale prices. shop Sherwin-Williams sales! 30% off March 13 - 15! The samples are supposedly not paint which is VERY buggy!! I am not so much in love as before. ***
Here's some info I found on the web about paint samples click here. When I use paint samples on furniture I use a top coat anyway. Don't think it's an issue.
Yesterday I walked into our local Sherwin-Williams for the first time (of course if I lived near Union, Maine, I would be walking into my Uncle’s awesome hardware store). Big regrets I hadn’t been there before. A sample of paint is 31 oz. Right now they are on sale for under $5. Usually they are 6 something. Still, that’s a lot of paint for the money.
I began painting my hallway from the HGTV color palette, this Sherwin-Williams’ Blonde. I love it. It’s a cross between a wheat and gold. So rich.
I went back today and did myself a little cost comparison when trying to figure out if I would purchase a gallon or get more samples. The gallons are relatively inexpensive and may be on sale. Right now they are running between $25 – $35 which is great for a quality paint. There are 120 oz. in a gallon!! That means buy the samples folks! Four samples are more than a gallon and is less than $20. The samples come in Satin which is a great sheen for washable walls! Yay, Sherwin-Williams! I love you!
