Perhaps a fruit collander?
How viscous is the paint? If it's fairly low viscosity, you could use cheesecloth. What size particulates are you looking to filter out?
booger sized. seriously, some chunks of I-dont-know-what, and some sawdust my 3 yo threw in the can. he thought that was cool.
I usually yell at it under bright lights until it breaks. OH...nevermind. I see this was a different type of straining.

The paper strainers from the paint store are about as cheap as you can get less than $1/ea. They come in medium and fine meshes. I also use a regular fine kitchen strainer that's about 4" in diameter for water based stuff. I learned my lesson when I used one for solvent based finish and forgot to wash it out. That was the end of that strainer. Here's a set of three for about $10.
I use old coffee filters. Everyone seems to like that dark espresso finish these days, so what's the harm?
(Loogie has good advise.)
