Painting Plans? Free Paint Saturday At Ace Hardware

by Categorized: Uncategorized Tagged: , , Date:

paintAs I ponder the unexpected snow accumulation and try to decide whether to go forward with a painting project or go to Saturday’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade, news that could affect my decision arrived via email.

There is free paint to be had Saturday at a slew of Ace Hardware stores in the Hartford-area and beyond. This would be its Clark + Kensington brand, and to get your free quart, all you need is a coupon off Ace’s Facebook page.

This is the pitch:

“This Saturday, Ace Hardware stores in across the country will be offering customers the chance to find their “soul paint” by giving away a free quart of flat enamel interior paint from Clark+Kensington paint+primer in one.

As spring approaches, homeowners across the country are beginning to tackle the home maintenance and décor projects that they¹ve had on their minds all winter.  Ace Hardware is here to help them get started with Clark+Kensington, which was just rated #1 by a leading consumer magazine in tests of its satin and semi-gloss interior paints.  Available in 120 harmonious colors, homeowners will also be able to have the paint tinted to nearly any color to suit their needs this season.”

The key words there of course are “as spring approaches” and the only color I want is “grass green.”
