Move over Pin It button, there is a new Tool in town called Chip It by Sherwin Williams. I have it in my Bookmarks bar and could just about play with it all day if I had that kind of life. But, I have responsibilities and people around me who have needs! Jeez! But, I can play with it if I am working so here’s a post all about it. Ha, I am not an all work and no play girl anymore.
Use any picture you can imagine. Go to your Pinterest board for inspiration or your own blog if you have one, chose a picture online, anything goes, then click the Chip It tool, hover over the picture and the words Chip It will appear. Click it and the paint colors from the picture will appear like magic. That is all there is to it. Sherwin Williams site will save all your ideas into categories for you to keep them organized if you want. You can print it out and take it to the store, or just write down the color and off to Sherwin Williams you go to get your paint color with no question in your mind if you have chosen the right color.
The pictures used for this post are from earlier posts I’ve done and/or my Pinterest boards. The above picture is of the baby’s room from the Real House “UP,” built as a replica of the “UP” movie house.
This pix is from my Pinterest board pinned for the ottoman. Notice how the Chip It tool picks up every color in the picture. If you just want one color you need to have a close up of it and the Chip It tool will grab only that color.
The example above of the turquoise bathroom doesn’t have a lot of colors for the Chip It tool to pull from, so if you want that gorgeous color of turquoise for example, there it is as Pool Blue or Aquarium.
I have this saved for the color Sundance.
Ladybug mixer from my Colored Kitchen And Laundry Appliances post. The Chip It tool is easy peasy to install. Just click this link http://letschipit.com/, listen to the How To video if you want, and then drag the Chip It tool onto your browser toolbar.
Okay then, I am all done playing with the Chip It tool, at least for now.
AFTER NEARLY AN HOUR of “just a little more white, two squirts of blue, a dash of black, perhaps a tad more white,” the paint-store clerk got my gallon to the exact shade I wanted. With a sigh of relief, he pounded the lid on.
“Now what do I do if I need more paint?” I asked.
“Don’t come back here,” he begged.
