Preppy Tip: Paint Storage

When we moved in to our house in January, we painted every room!
That's a LOT of paint! :)
Add to the fact that I can't pass up a fun color in the oops aisle --
and we were a little over our heads in nasty paint cans!

The messy, out of control BEFORE:

The pretty, organized AFTER!
I needed simple, inexpensive organization and an $8 case of mason jars from Walmart was just the thing! It only took about 10 minutes and made such a difference! It also keeps the paint much more fresh than an old, crusty paint can!

Tip: Splurge on the $1 Funnel :) Trust me!
I also wrote the name/type/brand of the paint on each lid with a sharpie!
I love quick, inexpensive changes that make my life so much easier!

  7. Great idea. I think Centsational Girl blog had a post in the past with nice labels you could print for paint. I think I pinned that one. You could probably find it on her blog as well. You can record all the numbers for the specific mixture of paint.

  9. Love this idea, how are the paints holding up? I want a storage system that won't dry them out, how are yours doing now??
