Hi M.. Unfortunately, the smell from the paint is likely Volotile Organic Compounds (VOC's). Voc's are found in paint, paint thinners, adhesives etc. and can continue to off gas and contribute to a poor indoor air quality and long term health concerns. Opening the windows and using a fan to draw it outside is a good option although difficult in MN. However if it is in a room that you can shut the door, that might be an option. You could also try using open baking soda boxes to absorb some of the odors. I would not recommend febreze or other sprays as they mask the odors with chemicals. If you have a friend who has an air purifier, that would also be a great solution. Next time, you might ask for paint without VOC's. It can be difficult to find. If you are unable to find it in your area, www.greenwaysupply.com is a store in Indianapolis, IN and they carry an entire line of environmentally safe products including paint. Shipping may be cost prohibitive but they may be able to direct you to the manufacturer. Good luck.
