Place several nail holes along the rim of the paint cans! The channel that the lid fits into on metal paint cans typically fills up with paint and when you try to replace the lid the pain spills over onto the sides of the can. Using a nail you can add holes around the can’s perimeter of the channel and this will fix the issue.
Spackle and then paint holes to get rid of them. You can buy spackle at any home improvement store. You only need a little spackle to fill small holes. The smallest holes can be filled by applying spackle from the end of a bobby pin. Once the spackle dries, smooth over the hole with something rigid (like a credit card) so the wall is smooth. Add a coat of paint. This makes it so the holes will disappear immediately!
