Free Paint—Color TBD
I painted my shop this weekend, but I didn’t buy any paint. Instead, I mixed together whatever was left in the cans I had lying around, which produced a reasonably attractive latte color. If I’d had reds and blues, I would have shied away from adding them to the mix, not wanting a Barney purple. And if the mix had ended up too dark, I’d have bought a can of cheap white and added it. It was a great way to clean off my shelves while keeping old paint out of the waste stream. Plus, it saved me enough money to pay for a couple of actual lattes.
