The Solution reads : Instead of shaking the bajeezuz out of it and hoping it mixes, snatch up an old beater from your local thrift store and designate it as your own personal power mixer. Just insert it into your drill and mix away!

Basically, we saw a photo of someone that had spilled paint all down her front, in her shirt, all over the floor, by shaking the can ...... first we laughed and thought about how many times we've done that ... then thought, what if we stuck a beater in the drill?  Lord knows we have beaters hidden in the junk drawer! This isn't a HUGE Junk Project, but man o man - it sure helps get you started on those projects! Just a helpful tip we thought we would share :)
