Sherwin Williams Paint Store in Dunwoody Village

Want to paint the town red some night?  Now you can.  Start your night at Mellow Mushroom by eating a cheese pizza (dough made with spring water), and a pitcher of Hoegaarden.  Go on Thursday night for free face painting, then pose for a photo with Mellow's new Transformer statue.  (NOTE: The stuffed animal claw machine is not as kid-friendly as during the Sugarman era.  The stuffed animals are them selves tightly stuffed).  Next, head to the back of Mellow Mushroom to the new Sherwin Williams paint store, then head across the street to Marlow's Tavern.


The new paint store is beside Ace Hardware, a paint-seller itself. Of course an open store, providing jobs and tax revenue, is better than a closed bank.  Sherwin Williams has some good stuff.  I prefer their Duron brand. 

I thought a sandwich shop would have been ideal for that spot, especially after the Parkway project is complete.  I hope they allow me to put my chairs out front for the Independence Day parade. Welcome to Dunwoody, Mr. Williams.





Welcome to Dunwoody, Mr. Williams.

They have a nice no-VOC paint. If you haven't painted with a no-smell paint yet, you're in for a treat.

I've used many brands over the years, but nothing but Sherwin Williams for a long, long time. It's the preferred choice of architects, builders, and designers for its' high quality. We used their brand on exterior siding more than 5 years ago, and recent work revealed fading imperceptible to the naked eye. No degradation from the elements is unheard of. (No, I don't work for Sherwin Williams - just a frequent user)

SW bought Duron a long time ago, so the "Duron brand" is not available, but many of their most popular colors are. They have either been renamed, or if you're addicted to Crisp Khaki like me, they still have the Duron color formulas. Their Duron fan decks are still available, but getting pretty beat up, so I hear that mine, in pristine condition and stored in locked vault, is worth $150 on the black market...

(The staff at the Georgetown location are brilliant at color-matching. Best of luck to the new location, just had to give a shout-out to the GT boys!)

and,by the way, Sherwin Williams had been in Dunwoody in the Georgetown Shopping Center for years. Is this a relocation of that store?

I asked at the Georgetown store and apparently they will stay put. They primarily sell to contractors (though we shop there)and the new store will be designed more for the non-pro customer.
