Quick reminder…we are having a PAR-TAY this week…
In my previous home I kept track of everything that I did decor wise in one notebook. The people who moved in our house were so grateful to have everything in one place. Since my brain doesn’t have a great long-term memory bank, it was helpful when we moved into this house. I actually had to call the lady who purchased our house in Washington to ask her for a paint color I had used. Glad I wrote it down!
It is really easy to do and does not take much time and will be invaluable to you down the road. Believe it or not you will not remember your favorite paint color five years down the road. Ok maybe you will…but I won’t. So I write it down.
I always pick up an extra paint chip card for all of the Behr paints (OF COURSE!) that I use. Then I tape them in my book. If I have a different brand mixed into Behr paint I will have them print out two formula stickers and I stick one in this binder. I organize the information by the rooms in my house. I write in there ANYTHING that I want to remember such as…
* when and where I purchased an item
* cost of items
* a swatch of the fabric used
* contact information for the companies who made items in my decor
* the paint/stain color name and chip or formula sticker
* the finish of the paint
* where I purchased knobs or hardware and brand name
Here are some sample pages…
Do you organize all this information in one place as well? It has proved worthwhile over and over again to have all this information in a binder. If you haven’t done this yet, it is not too late to gather all the information together.
