Paint trays make painting easier by giving your roller a convenient place to take a dip. Trays come in an array of materials with varying levels of durability, but whatever tray you're using, whether it's made of sturdy metal or throwaway plastic, you can extend its life with a roll of aluminum foil. Lay sheets of foil along the tray’s interior, being careful not to leave gaps where paint can seep through. Repeat this trick for all future paint jobs to save money and materials every time.
