Have you checked out the mis-tinted paint bins at your local home improvement store lately? Last night we were at Lowe's (I'll share our massive list of summer to-dos over the next few weeks . . .) and of course I had to check out the bargain bins.
I found this half full quart of paint for $1 (and bought it of course ~ I have big plans for it!)
Several small sample paints for $.75 (these would be perfect to re-paint a small piece of furniture, I think?)
And a full gallon for only $5 ~ woot!
They didn't have any great deals on brushes, but I just found my favorite Wooster Paint Brush on Amazon for $5.89, so I ordered one to get going this weekend. (My mother-in-law got me started using Wooster paint brushes years ago, they're definitely worth every penny . . . and a great price at $5.89!)
This is my daughter's room that we painted with mis-tinted paint a few years ago ~ I spent $5 to paint the whole room and it was perfect for her! (Now she wants it blue of course . . .)
Always be sure to stop by the clearance bins to see what they're offering, because you never know when the color you've been looking for. We have a list about a mile long of “Honey-Do” projects to start on our house, and I can't wait to share them with you over the next few weeks!
Looking for more tips on how to paint on the cheap? This is one of my all-time favorite topics (because we've painted alot in our homes), and I just love the power of a few dollars of paint to completely transform your home.
Don't miss my absolute favorite paint project of all time . . .
Well, at least my favorite right up there along with this one. (I just love what a little paint and elbow grease can do!)
