This simple tip saves a ton of time in the long run.
Keep your overall paint color palette handy and top of mind. Grab a couple extra paint stir sticks the next time you are at your local hardware or paint store. Use one stir stick per paint color/finish.
You’ll have your full color palette handy and ready to travel with you as you find and select future paint colors, rugs, flooring, furniture, towels, shower curtain, bedding etc. You see where I’m going here, right?
If you are really disciplined you could write your color formula, paint store name and phone number on the sticks, as well. I’m not that far gone (yet), but I know there are those of you out there so, knock yourself out! :)
