For today’s post, I’m just gonna K.I.S.S.!
No…not you. This post…
Keep It Simple, Stupid.
Or…Keep It SO Simple! I like that better. Change approved!
Yes, when it comes to getting the color, quality and professional smooooooth look you want with paint, there’s nothing better than a paint sprayer.
Now, if you’re simply painting something as quickly as possibly in a standard, available-at-any-box-store color, spray paint is your man.
However, if you wish to up the DIY ante and make something custom and pro-looking, I can absolutely recommend buying a plug-in, choose-the-exact-color-you-want paint sprayer. My personal favorite is the HomeRight Finish Max Sprayer…my do-it-herself bestie!
Today’s project was sweet and simple. I bought a vintage (cerca 1984) work light from one of my local, go-to shops, Stars Antique Market, and customized its color with a silky-smooth, purply-pink to match my cute pegboard. I’m so in love with it!
So…to recap…for elevated and professional results, a paint sprayer is just a no-brainer!
• paint sprayer
• custom colored paint
• painters tape
• work light
1, Disassemble your work light and ready your paint sprayer. Watch my super easy video tutorial on “How to Thin Enamel Paint for the HomeRight Finish Max Sprayer“.
2. Cover the light shade’s light kit hole with tape to avoid overspray to the inside.
3. Spray away! Be sure to spray from at least 1 1/2 feet from the item you’re painting to avoid dripping. Two to three coats will make the color deep and rich! Allow cover to dry for at least 2-3 hours before reassembling light kit.
4. Reassemble light kit, then mount. Done!
