Last weekend, during a frustrating shopping trip focused on finding replacement Christmas bulbs, I stumbled on a fun little item in the Home Depot paint section.
Behr had a display with a bin of little black plastic rings and color cards with perforated holes in the corners.
It’s a simple concept: You punch out the holes and then put your paint palette together using the ring.
Isn’t that great?
I told you it’s the simple things that can make me happy.
And somehow – at least for me – it made putting together a little paint palette that much more fun.
It seemed, well, professional. It made me feel like a designer had chosen my colors and presented it to me.
OK. So maybe I’m having a little too much fun with these plastic rings.
But I challenge you to go to Home Depot and not have more fun picking out your paint colors.
Let me know what you think.
