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.

Outdated 1980's Dining Set Gets Farmhouse Makeover by Prodigal Pieces www.prodigalpieces.com #prodigalpieces

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

Thrifted Tray Makeover ~ Budget DIY Project

Does making your house into a home seem daunting at times? Or maybe you would love to update, but think you can’t afford it? You CAN. Especially if you have a thrift store near by. Does it mean you will have it all in a day. No. However, it does mean that there is oodles of possibilities just waiting for you to find them. Check out how I took this thrifted tray and gave a makeover like noneother. {{three snaps and a Z formation – yes, I’m nutty like that}}

So, I have to ask…would you have bought this in the current condition? It’s pretty stinkin’ ugly, that’s for sure. However, notice that the frame is solid wood, the glass, though disgustingly dirty, is Read more

Kitchen Island Cart from Repurposed Materials

Do you ever feel the need to just purge and start fresh? That’s my life story. hahaha… I seem to be ever battling the need to destash my stash. People mean well when they give me stuff and I usually have a soft heart and take it. Then what…I store it forever and work like a mule trying to stay afloat. I’m not complaining, but have decided that this entire month is dedicated to tackling my workshop. No more furniture coming in (unless custom requested), no more anything until it is done. First up, I’m taking these louver doors and turning them into a repurposed kitchen island cart. Woot!

Notice the loot surrounding them. See what I mean? An awesome local friend gave these to me along with a chest of drawers (see the makeover HERE) and a dresser (thank you, Becky!). I have a thing for shutters and knew I could find some use for them. But…it’s already been over a year and they need Read more

Thrifty Farmhouse Decor ~ Budget Style Decorating

Who doesn’t like to have a good score at the thrift store? If you’re not raising your hand…ummm…I can honestly say that we are not kin. hee hee hee. Seriously though, take a look at what I got in this stash in one trip. A clock, a caddy, a wood thingy (I actually know what it is, do you?), and a large empty framed wall decor. I want to show you how I turned them into some thrifty farmhouse decor. Let’s get our DIY on, plus I have a WINNER to announce!

Assortments of Thrift Store Finds | Prodigal Pieces | prodigalpieces.com

When I go thrifting, I’m always on the lookout for these outdated wooden pieces because they offer much potential. Since I am not a box store junkie for my home decor, I like to make it my own by personal touches and updates, or even finding a new purpose for it which, I believe, causes intrigue in my decor.

First, let’s start with that little wood napkin caddy. Isn’t it cute? It is Read more

Entry Storage & Organization DIY Building Plans

Are you always look for extra ways to store things? It seems as though there is always room for improvement in the area of storage in the average home. I like to try to make better use of what I already have too. It can even be as simple as finding new purpose for a spot in our home. When I spied this message center at the thrift store I had no idea that it would lead me to create entry storage.

It was kinda like if you give a mouse a cookie story (much like my patio makeover), except this is the thrifted message center sort of ballooning project. The idea was to show you how to get organized, but then it grew and I’m so happy it did because here is what I did with it… Read more

Music is in the air, the birds are singing, and there’s not a cloud in the sky. Why? Because it’s Trash to Treasure Tuesday! Do you ever feel that way when you know you get to have fun? Nothing better than working with my friends on a trashure project. I’ll share more on their makeovers in a bit, but in the meantime, check out how I turned some of my stash into woolly sheep.

Like, “Aww…poor thing, I must take you home and give you new life” kinda thing? That’s what happened to me when I saw this…let’s say “dated” to be nice, bamboo stand.

If you follow me on social media, you know that I have caused an injury to my right shoulder. It’s something that I knew would happen at some time or another because of all the factory and laborious jobs I’ve had with repetitive motions would catch up to me. I am taking it easy on it and researching my alternatives. Meanwhile, like the stubborn nut I am, …I’m using Read more
