Here’s a first, Ace Hardware invited neighbors across America to mix their very own paint color and enter for a chance to be the 2019 Color of the Year.

During Ace’s Neighborhood Paint Party in March, consumers were encouraged to hand mix, create and name their own paint color for a chance to be entered into Ace’s Color of the Year Contest.

The winning Clark+Kensington color, Pineapple Cream Granita, was created by Francine C., of New Jersey at her local Ace, Costello’s Ace Hardware of Lincoln Park, NJ.
