Painting a room or a piece of furniture is always exciting. It’s like giving new life and new personality to something with one relatively simple process. And the possibilities are endless. You can choose a color (or several) that reflect your unique personality and sense of style.
But if you’re a creatively minded and visual person, there’s a particular challenge that comes with picking out your colors.
When you walk into the paint section, you’re confronted with a wall of paint samples, or chips, in what seems like every color conceivable, and it’s easy to get distracted. They’re all so lovely!
And soon, you’re walking around with a stack of about a hundred paint samples, none of which would match anything in your house. (Just me? OK.)
So what can you do with all these delightful pieces of color once you get home? Well, with a little imagination, quite a lot!
We’ve seen how to make adorable handmade Christmas cards out of paint samples, but there’s a lot more you can do!
Check out some of the things crafters from around the internet have come up with, and you might find yourself headed for the paint store… without a painting project in mind.
