Water bottle paint holder


Yep, painting again! Today I didn't have anything in the recycling to use to hold some paint while cutting in the ceiling. So, I put on my thinking cap and came up with this...

Cut a water bottle side off keeping the cap portion in tact. Works great!!! Even for pouring the unused paint back in the can.

Just thought I'd share... I'm sure it's not an award winning design but in a pinch it'll get you by!

Sorry, I'm just not getting that one.
A flimsy paint holder with a rounded bottom. Hmm.

Oh... It sits flat when you make a little dent in the bottom after its cut. It's not that flimsy either. It fits in the palm of your hand very well. I wouldn't fill it to the top but 1/2 full wasn't an issue for me.
