    When you paint a room, put some extra paint in a baby jar* and keep it handy for quick touch-ups. pinner said *I did this Aug. 2011 - dont use a baby food jar - use a peanut butter jar that has a PLASTIC lid or it will rust - that was a tip from my painter - its all stored in a cabinet in the house - just take it out and shake well and use a q-tip for quick touch ups. This has got to be one of the best things Ive ever pinned!!!!

I'm always throwing jars away rather than washing and peeling the labels simply because the lids have labels that won't come off. Why didn't I think of painting them, especially with chalkboard paint?
