Do you ever find yourself shopping for furniture or textiles for your home and wish that you had a your paint colors with you to refer to? I know I do. Here's an quick, portable, $2 project to remedy that.
Start by taping off a group of paint stirrer sticks from the hardware store.
Grab your different wall colors. I keep a little of each one in labeled mason jars above my microwave. They make for convenient touch up.
Paint the bottom portion of the stirrer sticks. Let them dry and remove the tape. An optional step is to cut some of the length off the sticks to make them more portable. Then drill a hole in the ends.
Add a metal ring. I picked up a pack from Walmart for under $2.
Write the names and brand of your paint on the backside of each stick.
Now you have your own customizable paint deck to refer to. Throw it in your purse and you're good to go!
