An artist pallet can also make a pretty good item to paint on.  So are old cigar boxes, kitchen chairs, and cabinets.  Anything can be painted on.  The biggest challenge is what will you create on this blank surface. So I look around my house and think.  Should I paint that?  What should I paint on it?  It is a fun problem to have.
