Good Finds: Mis-Mixed Paint

Pin it button
It was this article that first got us interested in mis-mixed paint. We'd seen the area of our local paint store devoted to those cans that weren't mixed right or were called in but not picked up, but we were usually too busy with the paint chips to really take notice. That changed today...We're happy to report there was really a treasure trove of good colors there! For someone like us who gets a bit overwhelmed by all the options, it actually helped the decision process by giving some choices a clear advantage (like a quart of paint for $10 as opposed to double). We ended up picking out a color in record time, and so far are happy with the choice. Of course the range of available colors is a crap shoot, and you could find a measly selection when you go. We still say it's definitely worth a look. Have you ever used mis-mixed paint before? How was your experience?
