Paint Samples Going Green

Ok yall seriously. I was home this weekend, and was looking for a project to do. Yall know sometimes I get project hungry, and I needed to be fed. I have not found the art that I want to use in the dining area just yet, so I needed something temporary. My sons frames had been sitting for months, so I decided to take them over by painting them white, and coming up with something that would be easy. I love the out come. Had I had better frames, or more frames, this could have really gone far.

Those colored paint samples at the local paint store are worth more than just a color idea. I pulled all the samples that I used when Ralph Lauren was leaving Home Depot. So think about what you can do with them before you toss them! Now this is green living.

Enjoy!

Great idea Tam! I have TONS of paint chips too. This kinda reminds me of that scarf (pashmina? throw?) you posted yesterday.

Tam, do this as an optical illusion, so when you stand back you can see an image. Great job btw.

Another creative project is framing a silk scarf.
