Organizing Old Paints

What a great idea I found in my inbox this morning. Compliments of Martha Stewart's daily email. This is a great way to organize your paints and save space by throwing away the huge cans that may have just a little bit in the bottom. They would also last longer being in well-sealed plastic containers. I know my cans of paint never seal back tightly because I am such a messy painter and slop it all over the edge of the cans and then it dries! And plastic containers are SO much easier to open the next time.

Yep, I have done that with my family room paint and need to do it with some others I have. Hope all is well at your house!!

What an amazing idea. I just wondered yesterday what I could do with all of these paint cans in the garage I couldn't bear to throw away.

Thanks,
