Great Use For Leftover Paint

Combine your paint for another color to use in a different room

We had a lot of leftover latex paint, and we found the perfect way to use it up and save money at the same time. We poured all the paint into one large bucket—tan, peach, red, yellow, blue—a bunch of different colors. We stirred them all together, and the mixture turned out to be a bluish gray/tan. We had enough to paint the walls of our three-car garage! You could also use this type of mixture as a primer coat in any room where you’ll be painting over it with a darker color. — Karen Merkel
