No, we’re not suggesting that you go to your local paint store and walk out with hundreds of paint chips and strips. If you’ve recently (or not-so-recently) painted your home or are in a home decorating-related field, chances are you have plenty of them floating around – maybe you even have an outdated book of samples!
The great thing about paint chips is that you usually wind up with a lot of them in coordinating shades, perfect for ombre effects. When you’re done with them, don’t throw them out – upcycle them. Paint chip decor is especially apropos for home decorating lovers and professional interior decorators, adding a riot of color and cheer to any space.
