At Ace Hardware, we don’t make you take a number. We don’t make you play guessing games about which colors go best together. And we don’t leave you to fend for yourself in front of a paint chip wall that’s bigger than your living room. Because at Ace, we understand that paint is personal. It’s about personal taste. It’s about personalizing your home. It’s about getting the personal service you deserve so that when you paint a room your personality can come through in different shades. Which is why we make finding the right color and choosing the right paint a much more personal process.
Updating your home can be as simple as applying a fresh coat of paint. We can help you find the right painting supplies to help you transform the “before” into an “after” you’re sure to enjoy.
Since preparation is just as important as the paint job itself, set yourself up with some must-have painting accessories. Take a few moments to repair small holes in the walls and fill in cracks and crevices around doors and windows. Then, smooth down the rough spots and create clean edges by applying tape around windows, doors and where the walls meet the ceiling and floor.
When you’ve chosen your paint color and finish, there are a few standard painting tools to have on hand. You’ll need enough paint trays and brushes per painter and a few extra if you’re applying more than one color. Many tools will help speed up paint application including step ladders to help you access sports that are out of arms reach.
And, when you’ve finished, remember to clean your painting equipment using soap and water. With the right care, these tools can be used more than once, saving you time and money, so you can get your weekend back.
