If you’ve just finished painting a room or rooms in your house, keeping the left over paint, let alone remembering what the colour was, can be a hard job. With an indelible ink marker or ball point pen, write the paint manufacturer, colour (code if available), and sheen on the top of the door (closet or entry). One day when you want to do a little touch up or buy more paint and you have disposed of the leftovers in the last month’s garage purge, you’ll remember to look on top of the door and be a few steps ahead. There are two pitfalls though.
One – Changing the doors without transferring the information. Two – forgetting to look on top of the door. (OK maybe three – painting over the writing).
