Even if you lay down the tarps, errant paint from your wall-painting jobs can end up causing a lot of grief. Halt those drips with one of the many clever re-uses of yoghurt containers.
This Old House gets tips from a reader about 12 different reuses of yoghurt containers and lids. One that caught our eye, as we scan the floor and notice a few spots we could have really used it, is as a paint drip catcher. Cut a slit in the yoghurt container lid big enough to get your brush through, and your walls and corners can be painted with less worry about what's falling down on you, the floor or the boombox.
