Although we're not in love with the lack of low VOC spray paint options it hasn't stopped us from loving their versatility and ability to take on just about any project. Many a garage sale or thrift store find have been given new life from those glorious cans. The only problem is, where to store them?

In our own home, we have more spray paint than your average bear, so we have built a larger storage unit for it. But if you happen to only have a few cans laying around, but don't want them sitting on the shelf (we're a sucker for out-turned caps, their colors are just so pretty!), try making a holder from coffee cans and salvaged wood.

Karen over at Sew Many Ways has done a great job with this small project. It turns something ordinary into something bold and bright and we just love it. To take this idea one step further, we'd love to see small pieces of foam or wooden shims placed inside the cans to give them a slight tilt. Spray paint should be kept at a slight angle so the rattlers inside stay at the back of the can to help it properly mix.

How do you keep your spray paint in your own home? Just on a shelf in the garage? Under the stairs or have you built something funky to keep it in check?
Thanks Karen!
