Home Right "spray it pretty" FFFC challenge

When The Fab Furniture Flippin Contest posted the most recent contest I had to jump on board, actually as the 1st in line, that is a first :) This month's theme is called "spray it pretty".

I LOVE the Home Right fine finish sprayer and always want to learn more with it. For now I use it to prime large pieces like this solid oak dining table. It cuts priming with a brush time in half and gets in all the hard to reach nooks and crannies.

nice oak table, good detailing but in need of a makeover
The biggest feature is there is no air compressor required, just this handy dandy easy to hold with one hand machine.
 Here it is after first coat, all you need is paint and an extension cord
 the 2nd coat of primer applied and left to dry
Once your piece is done (I did 2 coats on this dining table) it is time to clean up. Surprisingly it is not that hard but I choose only to use water based products in it so I can do it all in my garage sink.
 there is a cleaning kit included too which helps.

I then went on to hand paint 2 coats of light grey over the entire table and gave it an aging treatment using gel stain in a darker grey
the end result was just lovely
 original size
 then with leaf added
 just in time for Thanksgiving ;)

Without the Homeright Sprayer this table would have taken so much longer. The ease of use and great coverage it provides makes it a go to item in my refinishing arsenal often. Here is an example of me using it on dreaded chairs for both the primer coats and paint coats too and I used poly to seal in it as well.

  2. Can you imagine doing all those chairs by hand? I've done my share of chairs by hand but since I got a sprayer I don't have the patience NOT to use it. I imagine table tops would be the same if I was painting a table like you. The sprayers come in really handy for doors as well. Your table looks great.
