Confession: I’m an impatient DIYer. Which is why I’m usually all about quick and easy projects – I want it done and I want it now. Or yesterday. So when furniture needs a little loving, I ignore it as long as I can, because it’s not always easy or quick. Intricate parts can turn a seemingly simple makeover into an afternoon ordeal. Ain’t nobody got time for that. So anytime I can figure out how to speed up a process, I’m all about trying it. My friends at HomeRight sent me a new toy to try – and I’m here to tell you I’ve now pegged it as my secret weapon to paint almost anything.
Since we started with a confession, I feel the need to share another: my family is hella-rough on furniture. Coasters? They don’t know how to use them. So paint can look awful on painted furniture in just a few months. Like this table:
Less than six months ago I painted this little table, yet the finish has been destroyed by way too many glasses of sweet tea.
Which kinda makes me wanna cry. But, painting it again means that I can give it a new color and change things up a bit. However it took me over 2 hours to paint it last time, so I’ve been ignoring the issue.
That’s why I knew this would be a good project. I sanded down the table to smooth out all of the damage, then wiped it all down.
A little leftover paint & about 10 minutes later and that was that. One last confession (because I’m full of them today!): I was scared to clean the gun. I’ve used a few different sprayers over the years, and usually I sweet talk Mr. SCC into cleaning them, but he wasn’t here to do the dirty work. I was so pleased to find out that it took about 3 minutes to clean the whole thing. From start to finish in about 15 minutes? Can a project be any faster than that?
Yep, I’d say that the new Finish Max Fine Finish sprayer is now my secret weapon to paint almost anything!
