purple paint

In monday's dorm decor : part two post, I suggested using paint chips to cover a dorm room wall. I did this in my room this year, and I get so many compliments! I definitely recommend this project. Here's how I did it!

For the few weeks leading up to school starting, I went to Home Depot every chance I got. I went straight to the paint department and picked up a stack of paint chips. I usually grabbed about 15 at a time since I didn't want to seem too obvious that I was stocking up on them. I chose to use Behr Premium Plus paint chip #690F. This card has 4 purple colors (Midsummer Dream, Purple Mauve, Wine Frost, and Indulgent) that give an ombre effect. Once I created a grid layout for the paint chips, I used Command hanging strips
to put them on the wall. I ended up using about 120 cards to create the color wall. I love the way it looks and the color it adds to my room!
