It’s a Cinch!

They’re at it again! The ladies at  It all started with paintthe space betweenThistlewood FarmThe Cottage Market and Eclectically Vintage have set up another challenge! Well, technically it’s a series of challenges to last us until 2013! Each challenge has a different theme and I’m so excited!

Eclectically VintageI’ll hopefully by linking up to all of them, starting with It’s a Cinch! I came up with a really easy project, that is going to be super helpful for my future decorating needs! It was inspired by this post on Pinterest (originally from here): 
Basically, you dip paint sticks (I used craft sticks) into the paint that you used to paint rooms in your house. So far I have used 4 colors in our house, so I only needed to dip 4 sticks. I tried to wipe off drips as best I could so they wouldn’t be apparent when the paint dried. I let the sticks dry for several days, but that’s just because I got really distracted. 😉
When my sticks were good and dry, Jesse took them out to the garage and drilled a small hole into the ends of each stick.For now I just threaded some string through the holes and tied the sticks to a key ring, but I’m planning to attach them to a lanyard along with some fabric samples from each room. I’m hoping having this all together will help me when I go shopping or to yard sales, so I know what will look good in each room and what wont. This super easy and very useful project was A Cinch!
Eclectically VintageDo you have a super easy project that you want to get accomplished? Go do it! And join me at the linky party at one of these blogs next week so we can share our cinches!

  1. Great idea! I will have to decide which item on my to-do list is easiest and get it done in time for the link party. I’m totally going to start dipping sticks though. Paint chips just aren’t the same.

  2. LOVE it! The perfect way to keep your colors on hand. Thanks so much for the shout out, happy you’ll be linked up Tuesday! Did you get your Pass it On package yet?!? Stacey from A Sort of Fairytale posted about it today…so fun to seeing it all being passed on. :)

  3. First of all – love your color choices!!

    And what a fabulous idea!! Wish I would have done this when I painted every single room in my house! Would have made life so much simpler.

    Pinning this fabulous idea!

    So glad you joined our Cinch party.
