DIY Way to Store Unused Paint for Future Use

When there is only a little bit of paint left in your can, but you want to keep it fresh for that minor touch-up down the road, here is a great tip that I discovered.

First, I took a water bottle, unscrewed the cap, placed a paper towel down, and set the base of the bottle inside a roll of tape to steady it.

Next, I inserted a funnel in the top of the bottle and poured in the remaining paint that was left in the can.

Here's the real trick... before I replaced the cap, I dropped in three or four marbles. When it's time to use the paint for touch-ups, all I have to do was give the bottle a good shake and let the marbles do all the agitating. Then pour out just the right amount needed for the job.
