Project Steps

Intro

Don't let the cold weather scare you off from your holiday decorating! See how we transformed this wooden sleigh into a fun holiday centerpeice and find out how to spray paint even during the coldest winter months!

Don't have a sleigh? You can find one HERE on Amazon or HERE at Factory Direct Craft.

Step 1

Start by setting up your HomeRight Spray Shelter, Super Finish Max Paint Sprayer, and Turn Table. I put my setup in my unfinished basement and it gives me the PERFECT space to paint during the winter months without any issues!

The HomeRight Super Finish Max Paint Sprayer is amazing to paint with an takes all the paint you can think of. I used a FolkArt Chalk Paint to paint my sleigh and it worked perfectly and coated my sleigh with the perfect mist of paint and in no time at all.

The spray shelter caught all the mess while I was spraying and the Turn Table made it so that it was easy and quick to paint my sleigh without having to wait for it to completely dry. These three products combined make for the PERFECT way to paint during the winter!

The spray shelter literally just pops up into place and has a great little bag to fold it back up into and store away quickly when not in use.

Step 2

To paint my sleigh, I emptied my chalk paint into my Super Finish Max and then added a little water to thin it out a bit. I placed my Turn Table in the back of the shelter with my sleigh on top and then got to painting!! I did about three coats of paint and then let it dry overnight.

Step 3

The next day I came back and with a paintbrush I applied my FolkArt Brushed metal paint in silver to the bottom of the sleigh to give it a great, realistic look.

Then I taped off a line across the center of the sleigh and used the Brushed Metal paint in black to create the black "belt" on the sleigh.

Finally, I used the Silver Brushed Metal paint again to create a cute belt buckle on the sleigh. So easy and fun right...and it makes the perfect outdoor accessory for your front porch...or perfect for under your Christmas tree!
