Using it all up

29 Jan 2016
When you are close to finishing your painting project, take a quick look in your paint can—how much paint is left?

Here’s a few ways to use leftover paint:
  • For small amounts, keep painting new coats until ALL the paint is gone.v
  • Use it as an undercoat (not as a primer) if you have a bright colored wall needing to be painted a lighter color.
  • Use it on another project that requires the same color of paint.

This will eliminate any unnecessary storage or disposal of leftover paint.

Reuse Options 
If you have leftover, unwanted paint in good condition, consider donating the paint for reuse to:
  • A local charity
  • A high school drama department
  • Your place of worship
