In June we updated one of the warehouse spaces with a brand new coat of paint! We liked the yellow walls, but it was time for a change. We settled on the color Slate from our Amazon Select Paints.

These eco-friendly paints are available to buy in our warehouse and online in our Community Forklift Marketplace. Using patented technology, Amazon recycles surplus paint collected from local businesses, consumers, and governments. The manufacturer’s reprocessing system guarantees that every gallon sold meets strict specifications for color, gloss, viscosity and coverage.


  • Amazon Select latex paint
  • 20 beautiful and consistent colors
  • interior or exterior applications on drywall, wood, stucco, or masonry
  • low-sheen finish (between a flat and an eggshell)
  • washable and scrubbable
  • $20 per gallon, $68 per five-gallon

Amazon Select Paint in Slate is available online in one-gallon and five-gallon sizes! If you haven’t seen the new color in person, visit our warehouse any day between 12 and 5 pm. Furniture is currently 25% off through this Sunday, August 2, so you could also score a deal on a new-to-you chair, table, couch, dresser, or other unique piece of furniture!

We’re excited about the fresh new look and hope you like it too!
