Today I am sharing how to paint a bench with a sprayer. Last week I had the pleasure of trying out the HomeRight Finish Max Pro Fine Finish Sprayer. We had a bench that we purchased a few years ago from HomeGoods and it was looking a little tired so I decided to give it a fresh new look with a high gloss exterior red paint.
First, clean and lightly sand to prepare the bench for paint. The sprayer is incredibly easy to assemble and took about 1 minute. So simple!
The spray is so fine you can’t even see it which makes it almost impossible to overspray and create drips.
I sprayed with long even strokes back and forth creating a thin first layer.
I don’t paint a lot of furniture but I may now! The finish on this bench is professional and smooth and I asked myself a couple times during this project, why haven’t I done this before!
Because the paint spray is so fine, it dries in minutes. I ended up applying 3 coats to get the finished look I wanted. I didn’t prime prior as the exterior paint had a built in primer.
So cool right?
I absolutely LOVE how our bench came out and the sprayer, well it’s my new BFF. My grandfather loves to paint and create wooden gifts in his workshop and he has already claimed the rights to use this whenever he wants ;).
Isn’t it beautiful?
This little worn and tired bench went from drab to fab in a matter of two hours and that included drying time and me eating lunch! Bright red is perfect for fall as well as the upcoming Christmas season. Do you have an outdoor bench, chair or rocker perhaps that needs a little TLC? Don’t be afraid to paint it a fabulous bright color. You will be amazed at how you can liven up an outdoor space with a new “old” furniture piece. Thank you to HomeRight for letting me share with all of you how to paint with a sprayer. It’s a rockstar for sure! 😉
