God Bless Sherwin-Williams

Our local Sherwin-Williams paint store had a huge 50-percent off sale for three hours Tuesday night. Thank goodness we got a flyer in the mail about it, or we would've missed this bit of good luck.

I spent an hour and $187 there. Everything I bought was 50 percent off, including 4 gallons of primer, 1 gallon of glaze, 1 gallon of pale yellow paint, 1 quart of a darker shade of yellow, sponge rolling kit, 12-foot extension pole for paint roller, 1 can Dover white Krylon spray paint (to experiment with painting the avacado oven door), 2 sanding sponges, erasing pad, 3 rolls of blue painter's tape, a painter's pail with handle, paint roller, 6-inch drywall spatula, tube of caulk, sea sponge, drop cloths, and more.

I could've easily bought out the store if Darwin had been with me, but he had to work late, so I just got everything I could think of at the time. I should've bought more primer, but I was worried about getting everything out to my car and fitting it all in. The salesdude helped me, though.

Thank you, salesdude. Thank you, Sherwin-Williams!

In less pleasant news, I had a dream last night that I found a beautiful antique gas chandelier in our house, and I was very disappointed when I woke up and realized it wasn't true.

It could be worse. You could have woken up to find the lights you have covered in paint!

Kristin,

Great deal! I just got a flyer for a customer appreciation sale, and racked my brain coming up with various rooms to paint. Then stopped myself, realizing I have no time to paint right now.

FYI, if you sign up for the SW credit card you get 20% off every SW purchase you make on it. And they send out sale alerts with fun color schemes on them.
