If only transporting this big foam paint chip to the store was as easy as creating it…..

These are the days we wish we had a box truck!

After some over engineering we managed to get the paint chip secured to the frame and then secured in the back of the truck. And then we prayed to the weather gods for no rain and no wind on our 3 mile trek.

After a nerve racking 15 minutes we finally got our paint chip into place right at The Home Depot entrance!
