One of my very good friends recently bought her first home, so I spent some time last weekend helping her decide on paint colors for all the rooms in the house. Of course, you can’t help someone else pick out paint without grabbing a few swatches for yourself (if I had the time/talent, the rooms in my house would change color wayy too often), but what’s a girl to do with a variety of pretty paint swatches if she’s not actually painting anything? Well, let me show you some awesome options — and yes, I’m talking about those free paint swatches you grab at Lowe’s or Home Depot…
