My New Paint Touch-Up Kit

10 Comments

I love being organized – it can save so much time if your are able to achieve it!  Pinterest is a great source for organizing and DIY tips, and one day when I have too much time, I will test and implement everyone of those fantastic ideas!

One idea I just recently came up with is to create a paint-touch-up-kit for my clients.  I had been searching for the perfect containers for a while until I realized that small mason jars will do just fine.  With the help of round Avery labels each jar was quickly and easily labelled.

I kept the jars in the cardboard case they came in which made it is to carry the whole “kit”.

Lessons learned?  I had purchased mason jars with the 2 part lid.  Next time I will buy jars with a full lid, I think that will work even better. Additionally I will keep looking for a nicer tray, but no such luck so far…

  1. How clever is THAT??? Thanks! 🙂

  2. Reblogged this on Slow Luxe Life and commented:
    Since I completed my True Colour Certification with Maria Killam this year, a lot of my business is color consulting. I really enjoy creating balanced interiors, where color flows harmoniously from one space to the next. Here’s a great idea from Iris Interiors so you can always have a little touch-up on hand. Thanks, Iris!

  3. Genius!! I’m so going to use this at my house. Great post!!

  4. Mason Jars are the best. That is a great idea too to use mason jars for home touch up paint. Wish I would have known this versus having to carry a 5 gallon jug-a-lug when I touch up the house. I think Im going to have to transfer my paint touch up paint from that 5 gal to mason jars. Great Idea! Love it.

Wish I would have known about this versus having to carry a 5 gallon jug-a-lug up the stairs when I touch up the house.
