DIY: Organize Your Paint Colors

Hopefully, you’re way ahead of me on this.  If you’re not, this is a fast project that will make you feel like you accomplished something in a very short window of time.

We just did a major interior painting refresh and I’m embarrassed to say I spent a lot of time trying to figure out the names of the paint colors in each room.  Some were easy, as I knew I wanted to change them, so I did not worry about them.  I only wanted to be sure this time around I remembered what color we painted each room.

Here is my simple, ten minute way to organize your swatches (plus a quick trip to your local paint store to get the swatches).



Hopefully you have a file cabinet with all sorts of things in it: warranties, home improvement bills, and all those documents you never want to lose.  Now, I can just file this it away and pull it out the next time we need to paint.  It will be much less stressful than searching through piles of rusty paint cans in my garage.

Happy organizing!
