Hi all,
Having recently purchased sample paint pots (and eventually deciding on the right colour) I now don't need them. They are all over half full, some hardly used. Does anyone want them or know how I can avoid just throwing them away!
Here's what I have:
Wicks: admiral, elderflower, moon shadow, cloud, chinoise, duck egg
Little Green: hicks blue, gauze, celestial white, wimbourne white, echo
Farrow & Ball F&B: calluna, down pipe, railings, borrowed light, stone blue, strong white, blackened, pavilion blue
Deluxe: perfectly taupe, goose down, sapphire salute, willow tree, chic shadow
Hemsley: pitcombe pea, lovington grey
Home of colour: mountain rain, duck egg

Hi Op I use them up on painting stuff like picture/mirror frames, lamp bases toy boxes etc if you give a very light waxing, stops the paint rubbing off, or maybe for kids crafts etc.

You could put them on Freecycle for craft peeps.
