I had already painted many white boards as recommended by people online and I was still confused, hence my Pinterest solution to look at photos, even though I knew better – that’s just how confused I was. Then I saw the ad for Samplize– a woman had a paint square that she was sticking on the wall!!
I wanted to be her – and just like that, I was.
I cannot be more excited, or passionate to share this company with you because I know it will change the dreaded paint color selection dilemma and will help you avoid the fuss of going to the store waiting for samples and the time. I became a happy customer and reached out to the asking if they wanted to work together so I can really share with you how much I love this company and hope it will simplify your home paint projects.
In the past, I selected colors based on the swatch because I hated the idea of painting a swatch or going to the store or having to make up my mind 100 times. Really – I’ve had a few instances where that didn’t go well, and other times luck, or just plain contentment, that works.
But for the 425 square foot expansion and the goal of painting the rest of the house to make the base color (a shade of white) cohesive, I went crazy and over purchased paint colors in quarts and painted them on white stock paper from a dollar store because that’s what the internet told me to do.
Painting samples on the wall is such a mess, and the time back and forth to the store standing in line trying to decide on the spot under some crummy fluorescent lighting and pressure with a salesperson standing there ready to take your order – painting can be such a pain.
Ever notice the word pain is in the word paint? Ha!
Paint that is peel-and-stick.
Why didn’t you think of that? So thankful Samplize made it happen.
There are three popular paint lines that your contractor most likely prefers – Sherwin-Williams, Benjamin Moore, and Farrow & Ball – paint lines that are carried on Samplize. The adhesive sheets are made in the USA and the Samplize website lists the best seller paint samples so that may also help you narrow your paint choices.
The 12×12 peel-and-stick paint adhesives are cost comparable to the quart samples (depending on paint store sale offers) – without the mess or multiple trips to the store.
When I was looking the price of a 12×12 sheet, it was exactly the same as the promotion Sherwin-Williams was offering. One of my favorite things is there is no leftover paint that you have to safely dispose of, or the messiness of washing the brushes to paint a new sample on white boards, tape them to the walls, or go back to the store and order more samples.
Samplize sheets are the new efficient and environmentally friendly way to choose a paint color for your home. I ordered a few more samples from Samplize because I still had no idea what color I wanted to paint my rooms, I wish I found them earlier in my journey but better in the middle of it so I didn’t have to go back to the paint store. Then, I found my colors – Sherwin-Williams Alabaster in the bathroom and Origami White in the main room. We used Alabaster for the rest of the existing living room, kitchen and hallway.
Samplize paint sheets also have a light adhesive that wraps around corners and you can see the wall texture through the sample too. It has two coats of the actual real paint color rolled on with rollers for color accuracy and texture! It’s also thin enough that you can see the underlying wall texture.
You can compare the color against baseboards, and leave it up to observe the color in different lighting situations.
You can also pop it in your purse to take it with you to match furniture or fabrics.
It’s so accurate, look how it disappears into the wall of the actual colors I painted our walls in two different spots (yes these are two different white colors) –
