Spraying doesnt have to be so difficult or expensive! With the RIGHT Sprayer and know how you can do it too!! The hardest thing is taking it out of the box and getting started. So, im taking the guesswork out for you!


Most people get their sprayer and dont take it out of the box for MONTHS or NEVER AT ALL.


They need to know:

How do I load it?

What if the paint is too thick?

What if the paint is too thin?


While Im using the Finish Max, rest assured these principals will apply to most ALL sprayers! The Best tip I can give is to just dive in and be willing to get messy and work through it!

Have you ever painted chairs before? They can be a PAIN! But with the right sprayer all the guess work and hard work is taken out of the picture.

There are SO many sprayers on the market, this is the one I use since its not expensive and I dont need a sprayer,.. but most of this applies to all sprayers!

Your best friend is the viscosity cup (and a fine wire mesh strainer) and I show you how to put them to work! By getting familiar with your cup and using a strainer, you will get a NO FAIL amazing finish whether you are using your favorite chalk style paint OR latex. My favorite is Benjamin Moore Advance for a smooth finish,..

One thin coat and then another full coverage coat does the trick! Be sure to watch for dripping and allow full drying time between coats.

But you dont have to stop there! Use it to lay down the hard work of a complete paint job, then feel free to embellish! I glazed with Unicorn Spit here in White-Ning then distressed.

All 8 chairs completed! Adding charm and character to this beach front home!

Love that finish!
