    I use coffee plastic containers. I use majic marker to mark thr color. These can be shook up like they do the cans, only by you!

    I use pint or quart canning jars with rings and lids, or any glass/plastic jars with lids--like mayo jars. Works great and the lids are screwed so tight so there's no chance of them coming off. It's not a good idea to shake chalk paint like you would regular paint. It's better to stir it up with a spatula or plastic spoon, knife or fork. Annie Sloan recommends turning the can upside for about 20 minutes, then setting it upright, and stirring.

    I bought some 2 gallon containers and lids at Lowe's to transfer my paint left by the builder in the original 5 gallon buckets. The small buckets reduce the space needed and keeps the excess air out. The 5-gallon buckets can be washed out and used for other things (gardening weeds, trash buckets, storing pet food, etc.).

    Yes! I used creamer containers with a flip top lid to store my chalk paint. You just need to be sure to clean the top well before you close it so the paint doesn't get crusty. I've had some stored for years in these containers.
