Sherwin-Williams’ fifth annual National Painting Week or, as we like to call it, Semana Anual Nacional de Pintura is in full swing and homes and communities across North America are being splashed with bold and colorful news looks.
According to a new survey conducted by Nielsen on behalf of Sherwin-Williams, the timing for National Painting Week couldn’t be better. Nearly 70% of homeowners surveyed said they plan to take on a painting project in the next 12 months, and 73% state there is a positive emotional impact after painting a space.
Sherwin-Williams is making it easy for homeowners to follow through on their plans with a National Painting Week sale and by helping them find the right colors, paint and tools.
In addition, during National Painting Week and throughout May, thousands of Sherwin-Williams associates across North America will be volunteering to refresh more than 275 locations in need of a fresh coat of paint, such as community centers, parks and historic landmarks.
