Several months ago I did a feature on paint chip projects, and now I’m back for round two. The reason is because since that time, there have been many more paint chip craft ideas posted on Pinterest, and I just can’t help but share. If paint chips are anything, they are colorful, and always ready to add a “pop” to your home decor. Once piece I found that makes an impact is this modern wall art from A Beautiful Mess. I’m loving the colors chosen and how they come together.
One tip: if you can’t bear the thought of taking chips from the hardware store, simply ask for discontinued ones that would otherwise go in the trash. Click through the jump for more projects!
