Tip for Mixing Paint with Drill: Tutorials & Tips Link Party {82}

Welcome to the Tutorials & Tips Link Party where all of your do it yourself decorating projects, craft projects, room reveals, furniture redos, recipes, and helpful tips are welcome! I am a bit tip-obsessed. I love learning clever ways to make life simpler or solve an everyday problem. I’m sharing a simple tip tonight on how I mix paint. All you need is your can of paint, a drill, and a skinny-handled mixing spoon (dollar store spoons work well for this). I like to use an old plastic spoon because it washes up easily. Attach your spoon to your drill and stir until creamy and beautiful again! Obviously you could just purchase a paint mixer drill attachment, but if you don’t have one this works beautifully.

    Hi there…I recently found {fell in love} with your site. Thanks for hosting. I look forward to a long stalker-blogger relationship. {But not in a way that’s too creepy.}
