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!!

All I had to do was give the chair a light sanding with my sander, and make sure the surface was clean.
Then, I got to have some fun. Check it out in my sweet little video, it only takes a minute to believe…
How sweet is that?? Even with our gusting windy day, I was able to acheive a smooth, even coat. My video was on fast-play, but each coat only took me about 10 minutes to apply without a compressor. The best part is no drips, no messy layers, and only the sprayer to clean up, and even that was made easy by a new kit HomeRight offers, called the Rapid Clean Kit.
Just hook up your sprayer to your garden hose or even your kitchen sink and spray it clean.
Before the cleaning kit, the sprayer wasn’t too bad to clean up, but I did have to take it apart and scrub the individual pieces (that was fine with me because I loved how easy it was to paint). Now with just a bit of spraying, I’m left with those pieces squeaky clean! WAHOO!!
Once I had the highchair coated in my favorite aqua, I wanted to add some whimsy to the tray because it’s just fun for kids to feel special.
My littlest was so excited watching me paint and I just had to have her be my model for this post.
As soon as I set her in the chair, she kept trying to pick up the utensils. Ha!
She loved getting all the attention from her brothers and sisters and didn’t want to get out of the chair.
Who can blame her, right? It’s pretty, it’s fun, and ready for that special little one. I distressed the chair a bit to create a time-worn feel. After that I applied a hand-rubbed wax finish for protection.
I am very pleased with how easy this chair was to complete and was done in only a days’ time. This chair has sold from my shop, but I do take custom orders, if interested.
I know you’re not the only on who would like to paint with ease with the HomeRight Finish Max. Share and spread the love!
I’m off to give my worn out patio set a much needed coat of paint, so head HERE for the reveal!
