Paint Chip Wall Art

Last week my sister sent me a couple of really neat links to some DIY projects, and last Friday I crossed 'How To Make Easy Paint Chip Wall Art' posted on How About Orange, off of my list of things to do. I really enjoyed making this even though mine is really rough and not as neat as it could have been. I plan on having another go at this DIY because it was so easy, enjoyable, and most of all cheap! I bought this frame for $5 at Big W and picked up the paint chips from the hardware store. The colour possibilities are endless and although the colours in mine aren't visually offensive, I think it is a little too busy. Next time I'm going to try it with a contrasting palette. Click here for the full tutorial.


  1. Dude, that looks awesome! Your bedroom is so darn stylish!


  2. Oh very cool! I think these colors go very well together.

  3. I don't think they're too busy for my liking. I'd totally display or hang this up on my wall! :)

  4. Oh man! This is the coolest do-able DIY :D Thanks for sharing! It looks great.
