Save on Paint by Planning Ahead

Are you planning on painting a room in your house or have another painting project somewhere on your never ending To Do List? Even if you’re not planning to paint immediately, plan ahead to take advantage of paint sales or rebates available around holiday weekends.

Home Depot frequently offers a rebate on the purchase of Behr interior and exterior paints and primers, decorative finishes, waterproofers, stains and cleaners on holiday weekends.

Our family took advantage of a Memorial Day paint sale, purchasing Behr paint and primer to finish our basement, paint our baby’s nursery, and plan to paint several other rooms in our house. We found that Behr is good quality paint and the online rebate from Home Depot allows you to submit and track your rebate with ease (no UPCs or postage necessary).

During a Pre-July 4th paint promotion, we purchased a gallon of Behr premium plus ultra exterior white to repaint the trim around our doors. I’m looking forward to being able to paint and prime in one step! Any extra time when you have a baby is a bonus. We won’t have time to paint this weekend with the annual independence holiday parties, but we are happy to take advantage of the rebate. I love that we now have the paint and supplies ready to go when we have time to tackle this maintenance job and that we saved money.

Paint is definitely one of the most cost effective ways to transform your home and freshen up your living space. Happy Painting!
