I have a rescue to share with you today that is pretty amazing, if I do say so myself. It involves over 29 cans of partially used paint in a wide variety of colors, and comes to us from Jennifer at West Street Story.
Here’s the thing: Jennifer was able to mix up those leftovers, get a gorgeous new shade out of them, and have enough FREE paint to redo her living room walls! Impressive. She has several tips to share so that you can do the same, including investing in some good 5 gallon buckets for stirring and small containers for storage, only mixing the same types of paint together, and keeping the color wheel in mind during the mixing process. If you follow her tips, you might be able to save a few dollars on paint by using what you already have–and hopefully the results will be as good as Jennifer’s.
