Default Paint Donation, left over...

I am having Habitat for Humanity come by my store to take away our old unsellable but usable stains and paints. If you are nearby Stoneham, Mass (I realize it is not very many of you) and you want to get rid of some unwanted leftover usable paint, bring it by. Call or message me ahead of time so I know how much to expect. Need it by Monday or the absolute latest Tuesday 3/5/13 4:00.
I just ask that you box those 1/4 filled gallons into one so i don't have 17 short filled gals being stacked under full ones.

You can also use freecycle.org to make free usable paint available.

For paints I also hear a lot about Habitat, London, It have a great fame for furniture, upholstery, textiles, lighting and more at Habitat.
Before you began painting, remove the door handle and then check to see if your door is currently painted. Why is this important? Because, you will need to determine if the door was previously painted with oil-based or latex paint.
After completion your door paint use your decoration product over it beside it no harm at all.
Like generally people use keychains on the top of the door and some in inner side of children's use sticker printing.

We also donate our full leftovers to the Restore, our closest store is in Lawrence, MA. Last we we donated 16 gallons. It was great to get it out of the shop and good for them. They have some pretty cool stuff there too

Make sure you check on their donation requirements. Here, the cans need to have at least a certain amount of paint left in them as well as still have their original labels.

You can also get a receipt from them for tax purposes when you donate your paint. May not seem like much at the time but it can add up.

I once sprayed a bar joist ceiling with BM DTM dill pickle/green. I got a lot better coverage than I thought and ended up with 4 or 5 gals left over. I can't imagine anyone having any use for this ugly color even for free.
