Recipe Box for Paint Samples

Have you ever moved into a home that needed a little paint touch up but had no paint? Every house should have a recipe box of paint samples! Once a room is painted, I take a piece of card stock and coat one side with paint. I then label the back side with the name of the paint, name of of the store, and date purchased. The cards are especially helpful to use when I need to match paint colors for decorating purposes such as accessory purchases, etc. When I move, I leave the recipe box and paint cans for the next homeowner to use.
