Default Paint Cans

Where do you get paint cans? Some said Lowes but are they used with old paint in them? That seems to be a lot of work to try to clean out old paint cans for a paint can swap. Do they sell them to you brand new and empty??? HElp!

They sell them "brand new and empty" at home improvemnent and paint stores. Our local scrapbook store even carries them now!! I've purchased them at Lowe's, Home Depot and Rodda Paint so far in gallon and quart sizes.

The cheapest place I found for the empty paint cans is my neighborhood hardware store. I had purchased some at Home Depot, for about $1 more!
Check around! I'm sure you'll find some!

I got my paint cans at Menards. Can't remember what I paid for them, but they were fairly cheap.

I got mine at Home Depot. they were $1.29 for a pint, and I think $2.49 (or close to that) for the gallon size.
