    What kind of paint do you use: flat, satin?

      I've never found that it matters what sheen of paint you use, although many people say it should be flat.
      I do recommend using the link above to see my post because there are a lot of useful tips to make sure that your paint comes out successfully. Many people have a problem with getting it to turn out correctly and it is normally because they don't follow the additional directions that I have in my post.

    Can you mix up paint and use it later if sealed in a airtight container! For Small projects?Just starting out, my husband got me latex semi gloss, paint, very grainy, using a small item I got from Goodwill. Help If I mix one cup of paint, can I seal it up and use it later?

      @Deni Weston I typically store my mixed up paint in empty jars and mason jars. There is paint that I mixed up close to two years ago and it is still useable. My tips would be to store the paint in a cool (but not cold place) and out of direct light. Hope you enjoy your painting project!

    One question before I try: do I use latex paint? Does the "sheen" matter? Thanks!
