Memorial Day paint deals and sales

Three-day weekends don’t happen often, and when they do, you might jump at the chance to complete a DIY redecorating project—which usually involves a paint job. Whether you’re wanting to coat the living room in a new shade or spruce up your exterior façade, you’ll find awesome paint deals at your favorite hardware store or sit during the Memorial Day weekend.

What Memorial Day Paint Deals to Expect

Memorial Day sales are a great chance to stop by Home Depot, where you can find their premium brands such as Behr, Glidden, and Olympic, or Lowes, which features brands like Valspar, HGTV Home by Sherwin Williams, and Zinsser. When you stop by the store, be sure to chat with a paint specialist who can tell you more about choosing the right shade for the project you have in mind. The type and quantity of paint you’ll need for an outdoor paint job will differ from your interior paint needs, so be sure to do your research and math before heading to the store to take advantage of the best deals.

You can also find deep discounts on Memorial Day weekend at outlets like Sherwin Williams, Behr, and Benjamin Moore which also sell directly to the customers. Often, the direct-to-customer option sometimes carry the best deals on a holiday weekend especially if you purchase higher quantities. For example, a five-gallon bucket might be a better value than buying two one-gallon cans of paint.

What Memorial Day Paint Deals We Saw Last Year

Last year’s holiday weekend brought us some fantastic deals on paint and supplies. Home Depot offered a 30% discount, and we saw similar paint sales at Lowes, Menards, and True Value. These businesses also marked down both their supplies, like paint sprayers, tape, and drop cloths, and primer — all things you’ll need before you start your painting project.

If you prefer to buy directly from the manufacturer, Behr offered 25% off their five-gallon buckets last year, and Sherwin Williams had discounts as high as 40% off selected items. Many stores also offered discounted or free delivery, which is super convenient if you’re willing to wait a day or two.
