Paint Sample Chips.

I am currently sourcing paint sample chips for my latest assessment in Application of Foundational colour theory.

SInce I was a child, I have always been mesmerised by the rainbow display of paint chips in Bunnings. Admittedly, I went a little overboard on sourcing paint sample chips. I became a little paranoid as I pocketed a lot of samples…looking overhead for any sign of a CCTV camera, in fear that I would be escorted out of Bunnings.

Luckily, this did not happen. Instead, in the safety of my living room as I layout all my treasure¬†(ie. paint sample chips) realising I had been WAY too greedy….I stumbled across this amazing site with innovative ideas on what to do with those left over paint chips.

Such a lovely way to brighten up any room.

You’ll be the coolest kid in town with these rainbow bike wheels!

Definitely going to be making this calendar …but in a yellow tonal scheme.

Colour. Colour. Colour. What a gorgeous pinboard! The focal point of any room.

An innovative way to brighten up a white wall.

Turning paint chips into a pixelated artwork. You use your image editor to increase the pixelation on your own image & then use paint chips to match the colours.

This is a great DIY idea. If you don’t permanently glue the paint chips down- you can change the colours once every so often, to allow your interior colour pallet to ‘evolve’!

Hope I have provided you with some inspiration….if you don’t have any paint chips – raid Bunnings on your next visit…just don’t mention Distracted by Design!!!
