My First Experience Using a HomeRight Paint Sprayer

A few weeks ago, I shared our kitchen island transformation, we added legs to our kitchen island. and I painted the legs using the Homeright Paint Sprayer that I had been gifted. In that post I showed you the island, but I said that I would be back to share my first experience using the paint sprayer, and today is that day! I paint a lot around here, and I can't believe I had never used a paint sprayer until recently. And now, I want to paint all of the things!
This paint sprayer was much easier to use than I had imagined! I could never have achieved the same finish on these island legs with a paint brush.
Here's What You Do:
Practice putting it together before you put paint in it- read the instructions
Turn the spray nozzle in the direction you want the paint to spray
Read the directions and thin the paint out properly
Once the paint is thin enough you can start painting
Keep the paint sprayer 8-10 inches away from the object you are painting
Spray with a stiff wrist
If you have drips, wipe them away with a soft rag
Spray as many coats as needed, wait to dry between coats- It doesn't take long!
In addition to the paint sprayer, I was also gifted this awesome HomeRight spray shelter, which I set up in one stall of my garage to paint my legs with. It was fairly easy to set up, kind of like setting up a tent. But it did require the help of my husband. I don't know if I ever could have done it on my own. But once we had it set up, I was good to go

    Hey. I'm definitely going to give this one a try. I actually read about the Home Right Paint Sprayer unit on mother how and some reviews attached with it. For the money it's a no brainer. I have a simply fence in the backyard I'm going to try and paint. Let's see how it works out.

    Great Job!
