Looking for a way to fill that blank wall but don't have permission to paint? All you need is a trip to a major hardware store and an afternoon in front of a good movie to take care of that little dilemma.

Supplies Needed: Large frame with paper insert, a ton of pretty paint chips, double-sided tape squares, and vinyl letters appropriate to the size of your frame or phrase (4" - 6"). I went with a color scheme that involved a variety of tones from some of my favorite colors. It's basically a muted rainbow with plenty of lighter shades to keep things from getting too busy.

1. Experiment with your color layout. 2. Take a photo of your layout in case your dog runs across it and your colors get all mixed up.

3. Start in the top right corner and attach double-sided tape to each corner of each paint chip. Line the first one up and then use it as your guide to lining up the rest. When you add the second layer overlap the previous row so the names of each color are covered up. 4. Think of a phrase and cut out your vinyl letters to see how you like it. I just used double-sided tape to attach them to my paint chip background because they were see through. Once I was happy with things I framed it.

Paint chip art is a great option for renters looking to fill a big space without spending a small fortune! It's a fun way to personalize your space! xo. Rachel
