Do it: Dutchboy's New Paint App

Hi Folks!
Today I'm gonna get a little paint techie on you. I know it's November and a lot of you are thinking about thanksgiving and turkeys and football but the folks at Dutchboy were busy creating a new app called Paintlist.

Just a little background: Dutchboy Paints have been around for over 100 years and is known for it's high quality and durability. It's been rumored that the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco is painted with Dutchboy Paint.

In the 1980s, the company was purchased by Sherwin Williams, another very popular paint company. Their name was inspired by a way of creating paint called the "Dutch Process". Currently Dutchboy has ten lines of paint for DIYers to choose from. Their innovation through the years have led to the creation of a new app that's available for download from iTunes App Store or Google Play.

Now, many of us have playlists for our favorite songs, wishlists for Christmas but what about a Paintlist for our favorite colors? This app actually listens to our song of choice and creates a custom palette based on that song! If you're like me, alot of times I get so confused by the thousands of colors combinations there is to choose from, but with this app, the choices are created for you! All you need to do is download the app into your smartphone, click Mix it and it'll ask whether we want to use the mic or load from our phone's playlist. The app will listen and create 3 custom color palettes for you. It even provides the specific Dutchboy color numbers for us to take to the hardware store. And all the colors palettes are saved for us to pull out anytime. I've tried it. It's kinda fun and it totally takes the stress out of picking colors. If you want see a demo go to http://www.dutchboy.com/paintlist/. Once you find your Paintlist combo, just bring it to our hardware store and we'll have our paint experts mix those perfect colors for you to take home. So give it a whirl and let me know what you think! 

Til next time: Keep making, keep creating, keep doing!
