Today I'm excited to share my first experience with the HomeRight Finish Max Fine Finish Sprayer! One of the fun perks of writing a blog is that I sometimes get asked to review products. I've wanted to try a paint sprayer for some time now, so I was thrilled to have the opportunity. And my friend Gail over at My Repurposed Life has been singing the praises of this particular sprayer for quite some time now. I couldn't wait to get started!
You probably know that a whole lot of furniture painting happens around here. And I generally find painting to be a very relaxing. But when spindles are involved, the process becomes a bit tedious. So I thought this bench would be the perfect candidate to try out my new sprayer!
This one came complete with a peeling floral decal ...
and a really deep red stain.
I waited for a nice calm morning with no rain in the forecast and set up shop in the shade of my side yard. And as long as I was painting one piece, why not just paint a few more at the same time!
My prep included the usual light sanding and thorough cleaning of all the pieces. I also read through my sprayer directions and watched the video on the HomeRight website. And Gail has a wonderful series of videos on how to use this sprayer too. She takes you step-by-step through the entire process. Thanks Gail! ... I did try out the sprayer on a piece of scrap wood first, just to get the feel of it. But after that, I was confident and ready to go! ... And here are my pieces all primed. The hardest part was keeping the cord from getting wrapped around the furniture as I was moving around each piece. But since I tried this out on a Saturday morning, my husband became my right-hand-man for this project!
The primer went on beautifully and dried quickly. Before I knew it, we were ready to repeat the process with paint!
And here is my finished bench in a pretty shade of blue!
I gave her a light distressing ...
and finished up with a coat of poly for durability.
And I'm happy to report that this pretty bench found happy new owners at our tag sale last weekend!
I was really impressed with the smooth finish I achieved with my new sprayer and it sure made painting all those spindles a whole lot easier. Plus it was super easy to clean too. You can use it for paint, primer, poly, stain and varnish. And it has a precision volume control and an adjustable spray pattern. I definitely have some experimenting to do. I love having options and I'm excited to add the Finish Max Fine Finish Sprayer to my painting arsenal!
Thanks so much to my friends at HomeRight for the opportunity to give this sprayer a try! And be sure to check out their website for all kinds of products to make life easier for all the DIY projects in your life!
