Find an area of the wall where the paint is in good condition. Ideally you should try to find a section where the paint is not scuffed or stained.
Scrape off some of the paint with a utility knife. You should scrape off a few big chips, at least 1-inch by 1-inch. The bigger the paint chips, the better the color matching results will be.
Take the chips to the paint department at your nearest home improvement store.
Things You Will Need
- Utility knife
- Paint chip
- It's always good to bring in a few chip samples to get the best match.
- If the paint is very old and faded, it's good to take a few samples from different spots on the wall.
