Mix Your Own Paint for the Perfect Color


Using fabric as inspiration, I mixed my own paint color using paint samples from past projects. After getting the perfect tone, Home Depot matched the paint color of my creation exactly - and it became my new office!
The first roll of color is always exciting.

    That is an extremely smart idea. I have always disliked picking paint colors because once its up on the wall its either too this or too that. I think I will try this with all of the sample jars I have accumulated while trying to find a color I like. Thanks for sharing this. btw, the color coordinates with your fabric beautifully,
