Why I Love My HomeRight Finish Max Paint Sprayer

There’s no denying that when you find something that makes your life easier and affords you more time for other tasks or pleasures in life, the first thing you want to do is tell others about it so they can benefit too. That, my friends, is what this post is all about. A few weeks ago I shared with you how much I adored my new toy, a paint sprayer called the HomeRight Finish Max , when I worked on this farmhouse dinette set (this post described using paint and poly).

Well, now that summer’s here and I’m able to be outside more doing my work, I’m having a blast (literally!) getting furniture done lickety-split. For instance, I’ve had this baby highchair needing a facelift, and if you’ve ever painted a chair before, you know how un-fun it is to paint spindles.

Ugh… you’re constantly checking for drips, incessantly brushing hoping for an even coat, right? All these reasons are exactly why I love my HomeRight sprayer. Yay!!

Farmhouse Table Makeover with HomeRight Sprayer

The best things in life are free, right? That’s how I got this table set…for FREE. Thank you Craigslist, and lady who tried to sell the table, but got so sick of it being in her garage that she gave it away. I’m feeling a farmhouse table makeover coming on. hee hee hee.

I’ve been there done that, so I felt for her. This set also wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for my mother, who took her truck to go pick it up for a pregnant momma (ME).

That is how long I had this table set… for over a year, just like this desk. I knew that painting those spindles on those chairs would take F.O.R.E.V.E.R. and there was no way I was going to do it unless I had a paint sprayer.

Enter in my new toy… {dramatic music begins to play and commercial-man voice reads…}

“The HomeRight Finish Max Sprayer allows you to apply a professional-looking finish to your furniture and cabinets. The indoor rated air turbine powers the spraying of thin materials like varnishes and stains. The tight spray pattern of the Finish Max HVLP is ideal for finishing smaller, contoured surfaces like deck spindles, furniture and lattice.”

What’s HVLP you say? Just High-Volume-Low-Pressure, which translates to lots of goodness without much effort. As a gift to self, no one can deny that a paint sprayer is a good thing for someone who paints furniture, right? I read all the reviews (by the way, this entire post is my opinion and totally my own) and heard nothing but good stuff about how easy it is to clean and easy to use. Sold. Read more

Repurposed Door Mirror ~ Trashure Goodness

Curbside shopping is what I call a trashure hunt – that one’s man’s trash is MY treasure kinda thing.
