Caulk in Any Color
Pick up Sashco’s eXact color kit and mix 1 oz. of leftover wall paint into the eXact color tube, shake it up and you’ve got yourself a tube of Colonial Green caulk.
We tried it with orange paint. It came out a little light at first but matched great once it cured. There will be an air bubble or two, which could cause a splatter, so you might want to tape off each side of the bead and plan on tooling it.

Painter’s Pants Designed by a Painter
The pants have special pockets to hold everything a painter needs, including a handy thigh pocket for your smartphone. But the real clincher is the pair of built-in knee pads. Anyone who’s spent a day filling nail holes in baseboards knows how valuable this feature is. The pads are just right. Not so thick that they’re bulky, but cushy enough to make kneeling comfortable. These pants, from Armed Work Wear, are available online in white, khaki and black.
