Benjamin Moore




Valspar understands the right color can make a difference. That’s why they combine premium quality and a vivid color selection to transform the everyday. Comes in flat, eggshell, satin and semi-gloss. We carry the Professional (contractor series), Aspire and Optimus labels. All of these have no VOC’s or Volatile Organic Compounds and are known for low odor. Both Aspire and Optimus are paint and primer in one. Optimus is the top of the line paint that will be a heavier, richer full bodied paint (like a fine wine) and will last a long time while maintaining its color and scrub-ability.

In the Benjamin Moore line we carry five brands, Ben, Ultra Spec, Regal Select, Aura and Natura. Ben, Ultra Spec, Regal Select and Aura are all low VOC and low odor. Natura is the zero VOC’s and no odor. Furthermore, the Ben Moore line has a cabinet door and trim paint that can be colored just like all their other lines. Benjamin Moore’s website is very user friendly and available to assist you with matching colors to specific rooms with their Personal Color Veiwer, check it out.

Clark+Kensington (CK) is Ace Hardware’s new paint and primer in one. Offering over 1,300 stunning colors, Clark+Kensington is the #1 rated paint choice by a leading consumer magazine. Find your soul-mate with Clark & Kensington for your indoor or outdoor painting needs. CK is a latex paint that comes in flat, satin, eggshell, semi-gloss and high gloss. It too is low VOC and low odor. Exclusively available at Ace Hardware.

With these three lines of paint we are able to mix thousands of colors and do custom matches off of many materials swatches, fabrics and other paint brands. Bring us a color in a 1″x1″ sample and we can match that color with the paint you want.

One step furniture paint. No stripping, no sanding, no priming. Transform your furniture or cabinetry in one step! Amy Howard At Home One Step Paint is a water-based paint that adheres to most any surface. Apply paint directly to old wood finishes, concrete, iron, stone, Formica, etc. It dries flat, to the chalky finish that we covet on antique pieces found at the Paris Flea Market or our favorite boutique antique shops.
