(its as easy as it looks)
Find an old school paint by number painting on ebay. Customize it to fit the wall size you're painting (in my case, nursery wall). Break down the colors by hand numbering, matching each to a pantone chip to assign the palette. Take your pantone colors to the paint store. Now shoot a pic of your paint-by-number painting guide, download it, print it. Project it on your wall- trace it out, then start filling in your numbers. (used foam brushes & latex paint)
