It’s time to paint your bedroom or guest room or wherever, and you’ve discovered the best color ever. Here’s a way to guarantee you’ll remember that specific shade for future repaints.

Record all your painting info under the light-switch cover. After you paint but before you put the light-switch cover back in place, make a note on the wall of the brand and exact paint color you’re using. Also include the amount of paint it took to do the entire room. Replace the cover, and your painting record is there for keeps.
