C2 is renting cans of paints (good for the environment.) you bring back what you don’t use and they rent the rest to the next customer. They also sell poster-sized giant paint chips for about $8. Call ahead to see if the colors you want are available in the large poster-sized samples. C2 Paints can be found at limited locations, but they are worth the travel, especially for deeper colors.
