My Grandma sent me a newspaper clipping the other day with a great, super simple idea in it. When you’re painting, glue a paper (or better yet, styrofoam) plate to the bottom of your paint can. That way you can move it around and not worry about leaving paint can rings on the floor.
Because I’m a careful (and lazy) painter, I rarely use drop clothes. I usually put my paint cans on old newspapers, but I like this idea much better!
