Leftover paint allows you to add colourful features to your space, and it doesn’t have to involve painting a feature wall. Think about your closets and cupboards. Why not add a shelf that can act as a desk to the inside of a closet (hello, pop-up office!) and give it a colourful backdrop? Or turn that cupboard-under-the-stairs into a fun hideaway for the kids. Follow our step-by-step on how to create an under-the-stairs playroom in just 48 hours.
Want to know how to keep leftover paint from drying out? Storing leftover paint is easy as long as you keep the tins away from direct sunlight and in a frost-free environment. If you only have a small amount remaining, pour it into old jam jars and store it in a safe, dry place.
Tip: Leftover whites? Mix them together and use a base coat next time you decorate.
How long does leftover paint last?
