I'm just wondering if any of you out there have some words of wisdom regarding Ace Hardware brand paint, particularly exterior paints.
I've been collecting paint chips around town and I'm wondering if it's even worth considering the ones I've picked up from them. Our store does not carry Benjamin Moore, although some Ace stores sell that brand. And yeah, I know I could take Ace paint chips elsewhere and have them analyzed and recreated, but I hate doing that for any kind of lasting project. If I was painting a porch swing, no problem. But painting something a delicate color like red, something that I may need to touch up or repaint down the road? I like to have a stock color for that. There's a better likelihood that I can get more that matches perfectly at a later date. Not to mention, I've seen some of those color match systems that are less than perfect-- and a red that swings to pink or too purple is no good to me.
So...any experiences you'd be willing to share?
