When new or half-full, paint cans can be a nuisance, hogging otherwise usable space in the basement or garage. Once empty, however, those same containers become quite practical. For some, empty paint cans provide ideal storage for workshop staples like nuts and bolts, screws and nails. Others, meanwhile, view the cans as no-frills garden planters or as building blocks for creative DIYs. If you don't have any laying around, or if you can't wait for yours to be empty, consider stocking up on ones that come empty in the first place. Available at The Home Depot; $3.42 each.
