My Favorite Color Combo Recipes

It can be difficult sometimes to visualize paint colors and finishing products together. In fact, it can be difficult to decide on a color alone. There are so many wonderful products out there to choose from. Sometimes, I throw caution to the wind, but most times I do a sample board. Today I thought I’d share some test boards I’ve done of my favorite color combinations from Heirloom Traditions and Vintiques Chalk Type Paint lines with links to the products. I hope you enjoy and possibly find some inspiration.
