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.

Factory Finish with a Paint Sprayer

There are so many little things that delight my heart, truly. It can be as simple as my kids bringing me a sweet wildflower bouquet, a slice of homemade strawberry pie, or spending time in God’s word.

Today, I thought I would share a furniture makeover that will help you achieve a factory finish in a day. Sounds easy enough, right?

Curbside Haul Makeover Part 3 by Prodigal Pieces | prodigalpieces.com

I mentioned before that when I need a chair to complete a project, I can’t find one for anything. I’ll shop all over the place and come up empty-handed. However, it is quite the norm that when I have no need (nor room) for a chair, I will find not one, but two. ahem.
