Project Pinterest: Paint Sample Gift

Welcome back to Project Pinterest!

My husband's birthday was on Halloween. Since we have basically been a one income family for ten years now, we rarely exchange gifts (hey, you gotta cut corners somewhere) but always do something homemade-y for each other. This year I got to use an idea from Pinterest! Have I mentioned my affinity for that site?

Paint sample and I have always been best friends, as long as I can remember. Going to a hardware store and looking and actually getting to keep the paint samples was like Christmas morning to me.

I grabbed some cool toned paint samples from my stash. Then I used Word to create a title and type all of my pages.

I glued two paint samples back to back and then glued the text on each side.

Then I hole punched the tops, attached them with a ring binder thingy and my project was complete!

Pin It

Here are the guidelines for Project Pinterest:
1. Decide which pin on Pinterest you’d like to recreate.
2. Create it!
3. Flop or success, create a blog post about your re-do and include the original pin’s url.
4. Add the Project Pinterest button to your post so others can join in too!
5. Link up and check out other bloggers’ posts!

Can't wait to see your projects!



  1. That's really cute! I also become giddy when I am able to bring paint samples home...there are so many things you can do with those little "freebies".

  2. Thanks for stopping by. Girl- you are so creative here! I'm inspired. I keep hearing about this pinenterst - I'm going to have to learn. And just so you know -- being ordinary is amazing -- so claim it!! Blessings friend.


I love comments! Thanks so much for taking the time to write one!
