The amazing and most resourceful Craig Smith shares another smart, simple tip:

If you’re like me, you have a small inventory of wood stains on hand. And if you’re further like me, you have a few nice projects that you’re proud of. But when it comes to touching up a scuff, or making a matching piece years later… “What color did I use?” Recently, I’ve been making sure to flip the cans upside down and label them with the projects they were used on. This after I had to put four different stains on a test piece to determined which one I’d used on the bookcase, in order to make an additional matching shelf years later. From now on, I will label!
