I saw this paint chip craft tutorial over on How About Orange, one of my fav crafty blogs, and I was instantly smitten. It took me a few weeks, but I finally stopped by Home Depot yesterday to relieve them of some paint chips (I also bought two plants to feel less guilty!) and we were in business. I decided to go with a coral/orange/gray theme. First, you make a triangle template from some cardboard, then trace it onto the paint chips and cut them out. This part took forever and made me bored and angry at the same time! A break and eating frosting from a can were required.
Then I started arranging the triangles into a pattern. I didn't like the first one I made so I started over and loved it the second time around.
On to the next step!
I grabbed some glue and a paint sponge and started gluing the triangles down onto another piece of cardboard. Then I let dry for an hour or so while I watched old episodes of Parks & Recreation. Yes, again.
I trimmed the edges and put into this adorable bamboo frame I picked up at the thrifts*. I love it!
*I tend to buy any frame I like at thrift stores, even if I don't have an immediate use for it, I will use it at some point.
