Well, I figured it out. They make great paint pots.
Simple as that. They nest into each other, so they don’t take up much space, and they are sturdy enough to rinse out and use again.
The only snag I ran into was how to pour extra paint back into the narrow neck of the bottle, because of the wide lip.
It works beautifully, and I feel a lot less wasteful. We can’t afford to recycle here, and don’t really have the space right now anyway. (Our garage is full of my sister’s stuff until she’s able to come get it once she’s married.) So, I’m always looking for ways to re-use things and cut waste.
It’s not much, but it’s what I’m able to do right now.
Have you found a handy use for something you otherwise would have thrown away? Do share!
Grace & Peace,
