Perfect Paint Color

Welcome back crafty friends!!

Lets talk about choosing the perfect paint color for your walls or for a project.

One of the hardest things about our paint parties is deciding on the “perfect” paint color. In fact, this is so difficult for most of our painters I’m trying to come with a clever way to display paint color choices and techniques.

Honestly I shouldn’t be surprised- I’m the same way. I wish Mr. PCC could build me three of each project, so I could create them in three different techniques or colors, then display them to fit my mood! LOL!

My decorating style can be describe as “there appears to have been a struggle!” I can honestly say, I love many different styles- my favorite tends to be Shabby Chic Boho… and yes, that IS a style.

I LOVE the colors, the big framed flowers on the wall and the comfort of the furniture. As you can see, there is so much color and texture this is why I have trouble choosing my project colors! But, my challenge comes more with selecting farmhouse colors and traditional colors- these are pretty, but not my style.

Here’s my thought on color…

When choosing your colors I recommend keep it neutral on the walls and ceiling- this allows you to add your color around that and change with seasons. I personally love grays for walls, not beige or cream. Gray has a bit of color- but everything goes with it!! This is one of my favorite grays…


If your not big on color- then add “pops” of color and change them with your mood, seasons or holidays. I love switching out my decorating to bring the seasons in. Throw pillows, lap blankets, home decor items…Wood signs (wink, wink)

When choosing colors at our wood sign parties I always remind painters to select the colors they have a passion for or that matches their home decor. I have seen some amazing sign colors and many times thought “why didn’t I think that color”!

By the way, our wood signs are a terrific way to dabble in some new color choices without the commitment…. just saying!!

Thanks for joining me!
