Ever found yourself walking through the paint aisle and picking up several paper samples of various colors you like? You probably even have a particular color field your drawn to each time as well. My husband says I am a paint sample hoarder! I have one drawer in my desk that I keep all my samples, booklets, fan decks etc… In my itch to clean and re-paint rooms, porches, furniture and so forth, I found myself looking through my drawer full of samples, only to realize I could take the time to organize this as well. Being the frugal home school mom I am 😉 I had several used, but good three-ring binders, why not repurpose them into something useful right?! My total project cost was only $3.00 and less than an hour of time.
- Purchase clear photo album refill pages or if you’re a scrap booker you may have other materials you can use.
- Arrange your samples by color, rooms, or color palettes of your choice.
- Arrange and cut to size, use tape if necessary to hold in place, just leave one side un-taped in case you need to pull the sample to take with you to the store.
- Enjoy knowing you no longer have to search through loose samples for colors! 😀
