Let’s just get this out there, I am a little bit addicted to craigslist. I have bought quite a few pieces of furniture off of craigslist and love to refinish/repaint them and make them my own. A while back, I bought a dinning set that was hunter green, not really my style, but the chairs were exactly what I was looking for! Soon after I bought it, I picked up a paint sprayer to repaint the chairs. I did a little research and knew I needed an HVLP sprayer, picked one out and brought her home. I could not have been more disappointed! I thinned out the paint, just as I had read in the instructions, maybe even thinner, but the paint came out in globs and made a huge mess. On top of that, the sprayer clogged! I gave up on that idea, and HAND painted 6 dinning room chairs, 3 coats each…took FOREVER!
Enter HomeRight Finish Max. When I was asked if I would like to review this sprayer, I was hesitant, but hopeful. I know a few people who have tried this and had great results. The HomeRight Finish Max is made specifically for jobs that require a smooth finish, like cabinets, dressers or dinning room chairs! So….what did I think? LOVE IT! It was a night and day difference from the first sprayer I tried. I am so glad I decided to give paint sprayers a second chance! Let me tell you a few reasons why I love this spray:
*Light weight and easy to use
*Simple to clean out when done
*Does a FANTASTIC job! Very smooth, even coats.
*Perfect for painting intricate details (I painted a chair with canning, it got into every nook and cranny)
I took before and after photos, but it is hard to see the difference in the photos. I used white paint to paint an already white chair, but believe me, it looks so much better! I used Olympic Latex Enamel paint from Lowes, I think using a thinner paint helps. I also found this video to be extremely helpful in getting my paint to the right consistancy:
I copied every step she did to a T and it worked like a charm!
If you have been searching for a good sprayer, look no further, this one is IT!
