A word of advice {painting}

By Pinktoesandpowertools | Quick Tips + Tricks

Painting your whole house is a daunting task for a lot of people and I can see why the majority of people go to the team at Mackay Pro Painters, who are regarded as the best painters Mackay offers, to do it for them. They know it will be done professionally and much quicker than they could ever do it! But, I have had quite a bit of spare time on my hands and, most importantly, I love painting so we decided to do it ourselves! We did all the walls and ceilings during the build–which were all white because we had no clue what colors we wanted. Now, there are only 3 walls in the house that are white, and I was the one who painted them their current colors.

Why am I telling you all this? Well, because I always used to have leftover paint that would go bad pretty quickly after being left in storage for a while. We used to think this is just what happens once you open a can of paint but it turns out we were storing it wrong! So, one tip I have run across that I use when painting is how to store the leftover paint once you are done. You want to keep some on hand for touch-ups if need be. I save plastic peanut butter containers and use them.

There is less air that the paint is exposed to this way and you don’t have to store mostly empty gallon cans. Write all the information on the cap and the date that you painted the room.
