Paint Color Chart for Your Home

I’m kind of embarrassed to say this, but I realized one of the most important things in our home seriously lacked organization over the holidays – our paint colors! So.many.creams.and.sheeens. I can hear my friend Megan from high school laughing now.

After Christmas, I decided that it was time to finish a few small projects and touch up the paint. So, I hired our trusty painter. He pulled a couple gallons of paint and asked me which one. In preparation for Ani’s birthday party and the usual chaos of our days, I said “this one”. I thought it had to be it. I should have looked at one of my posts because he painted the back corner of our home the wrong color and I have no one but myself to blame.

In the fall, Chris organized all of our paints and for the most part I know each color and room by heart, but somehow something went awry. Each time our painter comes over I have anxiety that he’ll touch up with the wrong color, so I decided to create a paint color chart to organize them all and I thought you’d appreciate having a paint color chart as well.

You’ll find a column for the room, brand, color, sheen and notes. Yes, far worse things can happen, but in a world where I have a million balls in the air, I can rest knowing that I won’t continue running in circles around paint.

I’ve been working on mine this week and as soon as I peel myself out from under my cozy throw on the sofa I’ll finalize it. You can see the picture above for a sample of the printable and how I’m using it. I plan to add the year paint was purchased in the notes section.
