This week for Paint It Monday, I thought I would share these large printable labels for paint cans and also they can be used as home color binder sheets with you that I made over the weekend to organize all of my paints.
This project has been a long time coming and I have been wanting to come up with a large label for the outside of my paint cans. I have about 25 plus cans of paint (please tell me I’m not the only one) and I just want to be able to look up at the shelves to go right to a color. I made the labels huge, so I can really see my colors easily on the outside of the can and there is a spot on the label for the important info:
These label sheets can also be used to organize and quick reference all of the paint colors used in your home. The sheets look like this when filled out:
I have also wanted to create a binder of all of the paint colors in my home so that I can take it with me when I pick out fabric and furniture. Using swipes of paint is more dependable than paint cards because the type of paint and finish can alter a color. This ensures a match! Plus, I tweak almost every color any way.
The sheets look like this when you print them:
So all you have to do is if you want to print labels, use 8.5″ x 11″ full sheet Permanent labels and cut to label gallon paint cans. If you want to create binder sheets to organize all of the paint colors in your home, just print out on standard white card stock. Of course, you swipe your paint onto the square on the label and you can either wait for it to dry or dry it in seconds with a hair dryer on cool.
In order to print the label sheet, you will have to have Adobe Reader. If you do not have Adobe installed on your computer, you can download it here for free. To get to the file, just click the hyperlink directly below:
I sure hope you guys can use these! I know I can but I think it’s gonna take some time to get all 30 cans labeled. I designed the labels for gallon cans and if you guys have a lot of quart size (I don’t), let me know in the comment section and I will create a smaller sheet that will fit on quart size and post it here.
