Color inspires us every day. It can catch our attention, tie together a room and even affect our moods. So it makes perfect sense that when it’s time to choose what color to paint our walls, we find ourselves agonizing over hundreds of paint chips (a.k.a. paint swatches)!

Want to know a secret? You can use all the color chips you’ve saved to decorate. Instead of tossing old chips, try one of these paint chip projects! 

First, pull together stacks of paint chips you’ve kept in your junk drawer. If you don’t have any at home, head to your local hardware store. Note: If your paint chip project requires a lot of colors, we recommend asking someone at the store before taking a big stack!

Next, gather a few supplies. Most of these projects will require Mod Podge, a pair of scissors and a ruler. Then, pick your color palette and try one of these clever creations! Which one is your favorite?
