Sample This

I've always been too cheap to buy paint samples. This aversion usually backfires on me and I end up slapping up a wall color that isn't exactly right. I'm starting to believe that spending a few extra bucks to really know what I'm getting into isn't such a bad idea.

Looks like Bree, of Sweet and Bitter fame, agrees with that theory. Check out the amount of samples she bought to color test for one measly (yet certainly well-constructed) mantel, some bookshelves, and a guest room. "Holy cwap" is right!

After seeing photographic proof of such impressive color anality, I won't feel bad picking up, say, two or three testers the next time I paint. Or maybe I can just write to Bree and request her leftovers.
