Can I thin old latex paint?

I'm painting some new office furniture that I've built and I'm trying to use some leftover latex paint from the room where the furniture will go.  The paint is at least 6 years old and has degraded to the consistency of soft peanut butter.  Can I thin this with water or something else?

Hi Paulf,

 

Latex paint will deteriorate with time and if the paint is over six years old, I would recommend replacing it.

 

It’s not worth ruining your project just to save a few bucks on paint.

 

If you like the color the paint department at your local Home Depot can color match it for you.

 

Good Luck with your project

 

Mike,
