You recently painted your bedroom a bright white, but repositioning your wooden dresser has added an unfortunate brown scratch! It doesn’t take many furniture- or foot-bumps to add some unwanted design to your painted walls. Fortunately, it’s easy to seamlessly blend your new paint with existing paint and cover up scuffs. To learn how, read: Touch Up Indoor Paint.

Remember, it’s important to use paint from the original paint can. Otherwise, you’ll never have an exact match! Even if it’s the same brand and color, it’s going to be slightly different depending on how it’s mixed.

If permanently storing every paint can you ever use sounds like a hassle, you’ll love our most recent find: The Slobproof! Paint Pen. This inexpensive pen (two for $20) lets you store a small amount of paint from each can for mess-free touch-ups. It’s easy to use – just fill the pen with paint, snap on the brush and touch-up your wall!

If you want to keep track of your paint colors, visit the BrightNest Homefolio. You can store home-related info such as paint colors, phone numbers and more – all in one spot!
