Paint Color Matching

With only a quarter sized, flat sample, our experts can accurately create a color match for your next painting project. Stop in with your color sample and we’ll match your color or help you find the best complementary color. We also pride ourselves on the age old act of matching paint color by our eyes. The human eye can see and perceive many more colors than a computer can, and with our trained eyes, we are able to perceive the tiniest of difference between colors. So give our trained eyes a shot at your color matching needs!

Enviromentally Friendly Products

The painting industry is changing drastically as companies compete to make their products lower in VOC’s (what makes paint toxic) while using recycled materials and partaking in more sustainable ways to do business. We appreciate these efforts as we strive to provide our customers with non-toxic, affordable products that actually work!  Check out our Think Green page for more info on products we carry.

You can book a one on one appointment too either in store or on site from our home page!

We are proud suppliers of Benjamin Moore Paint

Our main product line is Benjamin Moore®, and the reason is obvious: We believe it’s the best. Whether your painting interior, exterior, or a specialty project, this paint is unlike anything you’ve used before. Doing it right costs less than doing it over.

Our products are premium. We offer the best products on the market for maximum coverage and lasting color. We stand behind the products we sell – they may cost a bit more but with the harsh (but beautiful) environment we experience in Crested Butte, it’s worth the money to get products that last.

Benjamin Moore’s Arborcoat, a low VOC exterior water-based superior stain.  Skip the mask and start looking forward to taking care of your wood. Hey, if the harsh CB environment is going to require staining our wood every other summer anyway, might as well make it non-toxic and enjoyable. You can actually get the kids involved and not worry about harsh fumes!

Benjamin Moore Aura offers the most advanced way to bring color to your world with the next generation of paint that simplifies your life. The patented breakthrough paint technology, called Color Lock, is the only one of its kind in the industry, bringing you a discernibly richer, truer color, paired with incomparable performance. Aura covers like no other paint. A single coat provides complete coverage for most colors. No more than two coats for the deepest shades. And the fact that it is Low VOC and non toxic makes it a no brainer.

Exterior Aura has superior flexibility and color retention with agents that inhibit the growth of mildew. Using Aura for your exterior projects is your best fight against our harsh and beautiful environment here in Crested Butte. Interior Aura has superior coverage and a great durable finish.

Pint Samples are now available in every Benjamin Moore Color! Just another great concept from the leader in paint. Simply pick out a color and we will mix up the sample on the spot.  Only $8 and worth every penny to feel confident about your paint choice.
