I spent roughly 3 hours cleaning out one area of the garage yesterday. Although we try to keep the garage pretty tidy, (a weekly kid chore), it never seems to look or feel that great, especially with the shelves full of various paint cans.
We do a lot of painting, there are probably 30+ cans in our garage, most are unmarked with warped lids and dried paint down the sides. Ugly. When I took a break from my garage cleaning, I was perusing my favorite blogspots. Lo and behold, I found this excellent article in "Adventures in Renovating a Brooklyn Limestone", all about organizing household paint colors. I love the idea of having a tidy shelf of marked paints.
The photos tell the story of this genius organization idea. If you would like to read the whole post and download the labels for the tins for free, click here.
