Here is a quick and easy tip. Make yourself a paint touchup kit for your house. Save up some glass jars with tight fitting lids, then head down to the basement or out to the garage where you keep all your paint cans.
Fill a jar for each color paint you have in your house (make sure you mix super well so that the pigment is evenly distributed and everything will match). Label with the name of the room it goes in. Viola! When you have a chip or a mark in your paint:
instead of wrestling with a large can full of paint you have to find, pry open, stir forever, lug around, reseal you have an easier way. Just grab your little jar:
shake or stir well
touch up and go.
Keep the jars together in a box with a couple of kids paintbrushes and you are always ready for a quick touch up. And don’t forget, next time you paint a room, make a paint touch up jar before you seal up the paint can.
