HomeRight Finish Max: Part 2

Written By Stephanie White on 25 August 2014 // Posted Under: Decorating, DIY with

As mentioned in the first post about the HomeRight Finish Max Paint Sprayer, a few days ago I had the opportunity to try painting furniture with a paint sprayer for my first time, which was outstanding. Taking a dated wooden dresser that belonged to my friend's grandmother I helped by refinishing the piece so that it would better match in my friend's nursery.

Taking the dresser outdoors, cracks and dents were filled with wood filler, and the dresser was sanded down using fine sandpaper. Next a coat of primer was painted over top of the dresser to help the paint adhere to the glossy surface.

The two front doors were also removed by my friend, as she will be adding glass to them shortly to help give the dresser a lighter airier look. Here you can see the doors without their center panel.

After primer had dried two coats of paint were than sprayed onto the dresser using the HomeRight Finish Max. Amazingly even after the first coat the dresser was nearly completely covered, and the second coat was more for touch-up purposes. The paint sprayer works remarkably fast, with each coat taking only minutes, and leaving a smooth and even finish. To use the paint sprayer all you need to do is pour your paint into the container, screw the container back onto the paint sprayer and turn the device on and it is ready to go. In the end to paint this dresser around 1/4 of quart can of white paint was used. paint sprayer furniture

Amazingly this is what the dresser looks like now after two coats of paint. Custom glass inserts for the doors are being ordered, and new handles for the dresser will shortly be installed. painted dresser paint sprayer

Stay tuned for the final update, of the dresser within the nursery with the last few updates including the glass door inserts.
