The Family Handyman
Your painting project is done—now what do you do with the unused half gallon of paint? Store it in peanut butter jars with labels indicating the color and the date used. The paint stays fresh if you fill the jar to the brim, so you won’t have to mess with a dried layer of paint during a touch-up job next spring. Plus, you can pick the right color in a second without sorting through a shelf load of bulky, rusting gallon cans. Thanks to reader Ken Ramsay for this clear and compact idea.
