In 1866, Henry Sherwin and Edward Williams formed a partnership with the goal to make ready-mix paint attainable for the average American. With a lot of determination, hard-work, and trial-and-error, the two men created the highest-standard for the paint market. Today, the company is responsible for painting some of America’s most famous landmarks including the Golden Gate Bridge, the Hollywood Hills sign, and the White House—while still selling consistently good paint for the typical homeowner. DIYers can find a wide range of Sherwin-Williams paint colors in stores throughout the country, and basic colors like this Eggshell can be purchased online. Available at Lowes; $45.98.
