Topic tags/keywords: tip paint

Left over paint? Do you really want to keep the gallon size can? Is there so little left over that it’s not worth keeping?

I’ve got a tip that I didn’t come up with. Still – I like it.

Store your paint in an old soda bottle. Put a few clean marble in it. Store them where the sun don’t shine. (Sorry, couldn’t resist.)

Need a touch up? Grab the bottle and shake it up. Those marbles will help mix even badly separated paint. Heck, imagine doing a touchup in 3 minutes flat. Yep. From discovery to done.

Where does this become practical? Limited storage for paint cans is one. Damaged can lids. You forgot to add weep holes to your can. You have a tiny amount left over in your can or paint tray. You have a 5 gallon container and it would be nice to have a little bit of accesible paint.

True story – I had just enough paint to finish a job. There was a little left over in the tray a tiny bit in the can. I used a funnel and dumped the remnants into an 8 ounce soda bottle. I only filled a third of it. 3 month later, my son bangs the wall. I filled the tiny section section then found my bottle labelled den walls. Shook it up, turned it over on a paper towel, dabbed the spot, used a clean section of the paper towel to wipe off the plastic bottle opening, put a new soda bottle lid on and put the paint bottle away. I had to do another similar touch up when we miss-measured for a toggle bolt location.

FYI – I found a great big bag of marbles at a garage sale for a quarter. I keep it with my paints.

I took this picture for two reasons.
1) Example of 6 year old paint.
2) THIS PAINT IS RETIRED!!!!!! YEEHHHHAAAAAAA

Thanks for posting this. I hardly ever have a small amount left – for whatever reason, I tend to use everything. However, I like the marble idea. I’ll definitely try it if I have left-over paint.

-- No matter how many times I measure, I always forget the dimensions before I cut.

Billy,

Cool – let me know if it ends up being practical for you.

I kew there was a place for my silliness. You may have noticed from this little shot that I have a bit of outdoor work to do as well. Will it ever end? Will I just start over?

I’m sure it will end – And I can always just touch up the paint.
