Martha Paint Swatch Idea

I really like this idea!

Martha says "Memory never seems to serve very well when it comes to color -- especially when you're trying to recall the exact shade of your living-room wall while shopping for fabric and furniture. Here's a way to eliminate the guesswork: After stirring paints, let stirrers dry, then write the color and room on each. Pierce ends with an awl, and string together with twine." (Idea circa 1998)


  1. What a great idea, thanks for sharing.

  2. We've just started painting our 60s built, 80s renovated (think pink walls, rose wall paper borders and floral carpets). This is a great idea! It will also help with colour matching and design (which I am not very good at yet). Thanks for sharing!


I enjoy hearing from everyone. Thank you so much!
