Creating a Designer PAINT CHIP WALL…Thinking Creatively with everyday Items & Martha Stewart Paint Chips

Robin Paint Chip Wall Concept2

I have long been an ardent fan of Martha Stewart and was very pleasantly surprised by her newly launched Martha Stewart Paint line in conjunction with The Home Depot.  The quality of paint, the colours available and even their creative intermixing of colours is brilliant….so whilst standing pondering the colours I realized the gorgeous lift the entire palette had when placed together and I came up with this idea.  Cover an ENTIRE wall with the paint chips…evenly spaced with a 1/2 inch separation held in place with 2 clear push pins (one on the top and one on the bottom of each chip).  The trick being is to keep your lines straight both “Up – Down” and “Side to Side”.  This wall took 300 paint chips (gathered over several visits to The Home Depot).  I love the graphic nature it gives a space, the play of the shadow of the push pin and how it so easily transforms a space into something signature and whimsical.  If you do try it make sure to send me photos of your handiwork.  I call this “Designer Chip Wall by Robin De Groot”…what else of course.
