    Default Found ticket to commercial success...

    Cruising through the 'oops' paint section at Lowes.... a steal at $7.00



    But alas with no label on the can I don't know if it was exterior paint so I guess my foray into commercial beekpeeing success is on hold as I won't be painting my boxes the magic color.

    Without a label they should be marking it down a lot more than $7. It 'looks' like an exterior paint since I can't imagine using a baby blue semi-gloss inside.
    Home Depot has a paint that is primer and paint in one. Not something I would use on my house but I am really liking that in the oops for my woodenware. Covers well in 2 coats.

    Why would you even spend your time painting boxes with this paint if you you were not sure it was an exterior paint???
    If it is a interior paint product & does not last, in 2 years you will be a grinding paint off to repaint all over again.
    $7.00 dollar bargin turns in to a $$$$ head ache!
    Been there & done that, trust me!!!

    I do better than that - I found a local company that people pay to dispose of junk and "hazardous" materials like paint, solvents, etc. They recycle the batteries, metals, and everything else they can, and the give away the paint to anyone who wants to come by and pick it up. They even pop the tops, give it a stir, and make sure its still good before placing it on the shelves. All I do is stop in once in awhile, go to the "outdoor" paint shelves, and pick a can or two that can use. Free paint.
