It’s National Heart Month! For the month of February, we’re partnered with the American Heart Association to participate in their Life Is Why We Give campaign. In each of our stores, customers have the opportunity to support their community’s heart health by making a donation to the organization.
The American Heart Association uses donations to fund research and education programs around heart health. This includes heart disease, nutrition, exercise, and so much more. There are a number of things we can do to keep our hearts healthy, from stress management to giving our bodies healthy foods and the nutrients they need.
Miller Paint loves helping our local communities, and together, we can work to improve our community’s heart health. No matter what your age, everyone can benefit from a healthy diet and adequate physical activity.
- Choose a healthy eating plan. The food you eat can decrease your risk of heart disease and stroke.
Choose foods low in saturated fat, trans fat, and sodium. As part of a healthy diet, eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, fiber-rich whole grains, fish (preferably oily fish-at least twice per week), nuts, legumes and seeds and try eating some meals without meat. Select lower fat dairy products and poultry (skinless). Limit sugar-sweetened beverages and red meat. If you choose to eat meat, select the leanest cuts available.
- Be physically active. You can slowly work up to at least 2½ hours (150 minutes) of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity (e.g., brisk walking) every week or 1 hour and 15 minutes (75 minutes) of vigorous intensity aerobic physical activity (e.g., jogging, running) or a combination of both every week.
- Additionally, on 2 or more days a week you need muscle-strengthening activities that work all major muscle groups (legs, hips, back, abdomen, chest shoulders, and arms). Children should get at least 60 minutes of activity every day.
- It’s never too early or too late to learn the warning signs of a heart attack and stroke. Not everyone experiences sudden numbness with a stroke or severe chest pain with a heart attack. And heart attack symptoms in women can be different than men.
We hope you’ll join us and donate at the register to help fund the health of our community. Heart disease remains the No. 1 killer of men and women in this country. The American Heart Association works every day to change that. They believe that everyone has a reason to live longer and healthier and enjoy more of life’s precious moments – and we agree! We’re proud to help our community find their reasons for giving and helping fund programs that are saving lives every day. Everyone has a reason to give. The Life Is Why We Give campaign asks, “Who’s your why?” If you’re comfortable doing so, we would love to know who or what your reason is for supporting the American Heart Association and their mission to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.

Miller Paint Co., Inc., to Acquire Business Operations of Perfection Paints in Kennewick
Kennewick, WA – January 28 2015 – Miller Paint has entered into an agreement with Don Deno (Deno, Inc.) to acquire the business operations and assets of the Perfection Paints store located at 8818 Victoria Avenue in Kennewick, WA. Miller will operate the new location, while maintaining the high level of customer service that has been the hallmark of Perfection Paints for many years in the Tri-Cities, WA market. On Monday, February 2, 2015 the ownership and name of the business will transition to Perfection Miller Paints. There are no other major changes to the business operations planned.
The strategic alliance between Miller Paint and Perfection Paint is a relationship that preceded the design and construction of the new store on Victoria Avenue. The high-quality, well-known Miller Paint product line-up has been a recent addition to the Perfection Paint product offer and, along with the fine line-up of PPG paint and stain products, may be expanded to into other product lines that Miller currently distributes.
“The opportunity to combine forces with Miller Paint, a local, employee-owned company that has been a market leader in the Pacific Northwest for 125 years, since 1890, is a great chance for Perfection Paint to become part of a successful and growing regional paint company”, said Don Deno, Owner and President of Perfection Paints. Deno will assist in the transition to Miller as he turns over the day-to-day operation of the new store to his daughter, Julie Deno who will be the new Perfection Miller Paints Store Manager and to his Nephew, Bob Deno, who will assume the duties of Outside Sales Representative for the new Miller operation.
“The addition of the Perfection Paint store in the Tri-Cities market to the fifty (50) stores Miller currently operates throughout OR, WA and Northern Idaho will, again, extend Miller Paint’s commitment to provide their customers with the industry’s widest range of quality architectural and industrial paint and related products”, said Steve Dearborn, CEO & President of Miller Paint. He added “our plans are to continue to build on Perfection’s high level of service to both the professional and retail customers. Many customers may already be familiar with Miller’s extraordinary level of customer service, our high-quality products, our unique color expertise, and our warm and inviting stores.”
Perfection Paints is a privately-held company that has been selling quality paint and coatings products in the Tri-Cities market for over 25 years. Their new store is located in Kennewick, WA at 8818 Victoria Avenue. Website: www.perfectionpittsburghpaints.com

We’re helping out an exciting art project in Portland! From their website:
Forest for the Trees is a not-for-profit public mural project in Portland, Oregon. The mural project promotes public visual expression; collaboration; and community engagement with contemporary art and the creative process. In August 2013, FFTT united seventeen artists from around the world to paint ten Portland murals.
This August, twenty local and international artists will come together for a week in Portland to paint more than a dozen pieces on public walls. FFTT aims to bring opportunity for local and visiting artists, and to share their gifts on a large public scale in Portland—a city already known as a creative hub and home to many talented artists.
Looking forward to seeing what will come of this project. If you look back on previous projects you’ll see the results can be fantastic!

“Miller Paint Transitioning from Devine Color to Evolution Interior”
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE For more information contact:
May 7, 2013 Tyler Tronson, Public Relations
Miller Paint Company starts a beautiful COLOREVOLUTION
PORTLAND OR – On May 23, 2013, Miller Paint Company will unveil their newest interior paint color collection called COLOREVOLUTION. Inspired by the artistic eye of landscape artist and Miller Paint founder, Ernest Miller, the COLOREVOLUTION collection is the most advanced evolution of color and quality in the market today.
Handcrafting exceptional paint is engrained in Miller Paint’s history and dates back to the late 1880’s when artist Ernest Miller decided to create a better paint formula. After 123 years of producing quality paint in the Pacific Northwest, Miller Paint is starting a color revolution where texture meets technology and function meets fashion.
The dynamic COLOREVOLUTION color pallet is a collaboration of Miller Paint and five renowned Pacific Northwest designers. The color collection features 168 brilliant colors, with many of the colors selected from the old Devine Color pallet. The Evolution paint is the same formula as the old Devine Color, Miller Paint’s discontinued high end paint line. Customers can expect the same silky smooth coverage without any spatter, and a luxurious depth of color that transforms your walls into works of art. Just like all color offers at Miller Paint, the COLOREVOLUTION pallet was developed for the Pacific Northwest so it provides the symphony of warm colors that surround us in our beautiful part of the world.
“Every time we craft our paint and select colors for your home we make sure that an equal measure of pride and protection goes into every can,” said Steve Dearborn, President and CEO of Miller Paint Company. “Evolution interior paint is our finest, most advanced paint and one that our Pacific Northwest customers will love.”
Customers can check out the new Evolution paint and COLOREVOLUTION collection in display racks in Miller Paint stores starting May 23, 2013.
