THANK YOU TO HOMERIGHT FOR SPONSORING THIS PRODUCT BLOG POST. THE OPINIONS I SHARED ARE ENTIRELY MY OWN BASED ON MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE PRODUCT OR COMPANY.
The holidays are upon us, and I am so excited! I am preparing for Thanksgiving this week and Christmas will start appearing in the home this weekend – yay, I cannot wait! While bringing out the holiday decor I came across an old nightstand that was not in use and just sitting in storage.
I had received a few products from my friends at HomeRight and this piece of furniture seemed like the perfect item to test out the items. I was excited to receive the HomeRight Finish Max Paint Sprayer and the HomeRight Large Spray Shelter.
I had never used a spray painter before and I will admit I was a bit nervous about trying it out. I had no idea what to expect, but after a few fellow DIYer friends raved about the sprayer I felt it was time to give it a try.
Once I opened the box I was happily surprised that there were very few parts to assemble.
The spray shelter was bigger than I had anticipated, which was great because I had lots of space to work in. No more days of painting in the garage or side yard. I could paint multiple pieces at once and not create a huge mess. Simply place a drop cloth on the floor to eliminate any extra cleanup.
I removed the hardware from my dark brown nightstand and wiped off the dust. I was ready to begin.
I assembled the spray painter, added my paint into the cup and was ready to go. I used a latex paint for this project (Behr Swiss Coffee). I used a mask so I did not breathe the paint fumes and used gloves, too.
I started-off on a practice board to make certain I had a handle on it before moving onto my “real” piece. Everything looked good so I moved on to the night stand.
The HomeRight Finish Max Paint Sprayer has a fine finish sprayer which keeps you from having much over spray and wasting paint. It took me a few seconds to get the hang of it, but I was shocked at how smoothly the paint went on. The sound of the fan blowing as I painted made me feel like a professional which was a fun little bonus!
After only two coats I was finished! And the clean up was also much easier than I had imagined. There wasn’t a lot of disassembly and part-scrubbing. I wiped-down the outside, rinsed of the cup and intake tube, and then ran a few cups of water through it, and that was it.
I added some new hardware and now I have a “new” piece of furniture for my mudroom. I of course decorated it for Thanksgiving but I can imagine this piece being used for everyday use, too! I love how it came out!
For my first time ever using a paint sprayer I was thrilled with the results! It had a very professional looking finish! You can also use the Fine Finish Sprayer with clear sealer, polyurethane, primer, stain and varnish. I can’t wait to use my HomeRight products for future products!
