The color Rich Navy has been discontinued and I am really looking for this color for my front door. If anyone knows where I might be able to find a quart or two, that would be great. Ultimately I would like to find 3 quarts for both front and back door.

Thank you in advance for all your help with this matter.
Dawn

Can’t you get your local paint store to mix it for you?

How long ago was it discontinued? I needed some Sherwin Williams “High Seas” (perfect match to the OEM color used by Delta back in the 50’s and 60’s) that had been discontinued. I was able to find a couple stores in nearby towns that still had some on the shelf. You might try calling around to see if you can find any still left.

Otherwise, do you have a sample of the color? You can easily get it color matched if you do.

Oh – just to be a PITA, I asked the local SW store if they could mix up a gallon of it for me in their industrial enamel (the color was only available in rattle cans before being discontinued). They told me to bring in a sample to scan. I asked why they would need a sample, since it’s THEIR paint and they should know the secret formula already. Nope… they don’t have it and can’t get it, so scanning it from a sample was the only way they could mix me a batch. go figure.

Cheers,
Brad

I can’t just get it matched due to the no drip gel technology of the Glidden paint. This paint is awesome and only sold at Home Depot! I have already called Glidden for leftover factory possibilities and Home Depot Corporate to help me find it. Check it out on their website, this stuff is awesome. Thanks for your replies:)

They haven’t discontinued the paint, only the color I would like. In the blues they only have a teal. I might just have to do the black but really wanted to step out of the box. Saw a review on this website from a couple years back and that is why I am here! Thanks again.

Have your say...
