A colorful life

Larry Dalman, who worked at the Seven’s paint store in Grand Haven for nearly half a century, now runs his own business out of the same location. Seven’s closed in February.

Larry Dahlman leads a colorful life.

He started painting cottages at age 13, and four years later got a full-time job at Seven’s Paint & Wallpaper in Grand Haven. He’s been there ever since.

Nice article. Congratulations Larry. Please get the word out that this is now your business and locally owned. Best wishes to you and your new business.


Congratulations Larry. I worked for Larry for a few years a long time ago. He was a good boss and an all around good guy. I can honestly say without him, I would not be an owner of my own successful paint store.
