Los Angeles filmmaker and actor Scott Prendergast
is good at finding a good deal. First he moved into the stylish Los Feliz apartment our good friend Heseon gave up when she moved to Redondo Beach
. Then he followed up that steal by "pilfering" 500 paint samples from Home Depot to adorn his bedroom walls. The effect is not unlike decorative tile from a distance. Stare at it look enough and you'll maybe see one of those phantom images popular in the 90's...
"I went to home depot about 15 times and took about 100 samples each time", admit Scott. We're not promoting doing the same, but if you happen to have some paint chip samples in bulk, or ask your local hardware store for excess/outdated stock, perhaps you can follow suit without the subterfuge.
[Thanks Heseon for the tip!]
