Nite Kongtahworn was recently inspired to create a DIY project that portrays a smiling Marilyn Monroe using Benjamin Moore paint chips.

From a distance, the portrait looks like any other; however, once up close, it is easy to see the paint sample detail. It took Nite Kongtahworn many trips to the hardware store and hours of Photoshop sessions to finally complete this piece. Check out the paint chip Marilyn Monroe in the gallery above!
