Get organized for good with this free printable paint color chart! It’s the easiest way to keep track of which color goes where, allowing you to organize even the messiest shelves in your home.
If you’re anything like me, you love an organization project that helps make your life easier. This one is just that – you’ll never worry about touching up walls or trim with the wrong color again.
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! We’ve been remodeling our room room by room for many years, and the paint cans have gotten out of hand.
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.
Paint Color Chart for Your Home
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.
How to Use this Paint Color Chart
I’ve been working on mine this week. You can see the picture above for a sample of the printable and how I’m using it.
I plan to add the year each paint was purchased in the notes section.
I’ll be finalizing ours asap so that we don’t have any more mishaps. Here’s to a more organized (and less stressful) year ahead!
- Organize and store your paint cans in a cool, dry area of your home.
- Hang this printable paint chart near your paint storage, or anywhere that you store important paperwork for your home.
- Try using these touch up paint storage containers to clean up those messy old paint cans.
- For small touch up projects, try a touch up paint pen – they are lifesavers!
