Default Home Depot Oops paint

Was just checking the local HDís $9.00 oops section and the guy working the counter told me he just marked them all down to .25 cents. Didnít really need anymore but picked up a brown and black gallon of exterior paints to add to the deer stand paint stash.

I buy it all the time and just mix it all together. I usually come up with some sort of grey.

Wife’s cousin has a bunch of rent houses. He buys those beep oops paints….mixes them together and whatever the color is that’s what color the house gets painted.

Great buy!
I recently went to HD to buy ready seal sealer/stain to treat my deck. At the self check out the $38.99 a gallon rang up .01
I needed another gallon the next day same result. I went back and got 2 more gallons and .02
I never thought about the deer blinds or might have gotten it all.

You can never have to much paint. When you find it that cheap, I'd buy all the exterior they have. My wife just shakes her head.

Wow! For a while Lowe’s wouldn’t change the color of their oops paint without wanting to charge me full price. Say I bought a gallon of Moser Pink and wanted it olive drab, they wouldn’t change it. Then they started changing it for free again.

Bought a gallon of oops blue at HD and had a bunch of partial cans of spray paint. Blind ended up blue with black/brown/green stripes. Deer don't care one bit, maybe they think it's the sky
