Today, I am sharing my review of the Homeright Finish Max Fine Finish Sprayer. Have you ever used a new product and wondered where it has been all your life? That’s how I felt after my first time using this paint sprayer. Not only was it easy, it saved me loads of time and gave my project a beautiful professional finish.
I was given the chance to review a Homeright Finish Max Sprayer and I knew right away what I wanted to use it on first. It’s a biggie! Remember, that ugly, dark oak-doored hallway we have? I painted the closet door by hand and it took me almost all day to get one side of the door done. Waiting between coats using a foam roller and brush. I had high hopes for my new painting weapon. 5 doors, front and back, all oak…how much time could I save?
We first sanded them down very well. This took a little extra time, but it is necessary for how grainy and full of gloss and stain these doors are. I have used deglosser in the past and lightly sanded them and that works well too. Since we were dong so many at once , we opted to pull out the sander.
After our doors were prepped, it was time to get our paint ready to spray. Most latex paints require some thinning when you use them with a sprayer. To figure this out, you can use the chart and tools provided with your sprayer. We already knew how much water to add based off the paint can instructions.
Since this was my first time using this tool, I tested it on some old base board to get a feel for it. It was late at night, but I had to try it out on one of the doors. Then, someone all the sudden was very interested in helping out. We actually had a fight over who would get to use it first.
Dave relinquished the sprayer to me after he played a bit and…how do I explain this? Hmmmmm…Oh! I know! Have you ever seen Hitchcock’s To Catch A Thief? Well, the scene where Cary Grant and Grace Kelly are getting romantic and they keep cutting to the firework display outside their balcony. It was like that using this paint sprayer. Just– we weren’t on the French Riveria and I don’t have fancy diamonds. But, it was euphoric all the same.
So, the next morning, I started spraying my doors.
I love this thing! It covers great, leaves a flawless finish, and it is so exact. You don’t need a compressor, it just plugs-in. You aren’t filling the air with paint particles like spray paint. Since I did 5 doors, here’s a quick tip: keep some Q-tips and a cup of water at your side so you can clean off the sprayer nozzle when needed.
Nice finish!!!!! Guess how long it took me to paint one side each of 5 doors? This is awesome, just over an hour! I averaged about 15-20 minutes per door. If I had to paint this with a roller and brush, and wait between coats…yikes!
I heart you so hard Homeright Finish Max Sprayer!!! My mind is already racing to future furniture and home projects that this will be perfect to use on! Not only can you use paint, but you can use urethane, stain, enamels, and oils with this sprayer too.
I love sharing products with you guys that make home improvement projects easier. Like with any tool, clean tools are happy tools!
I will be working on the rest of the hallway this week and I will have a reveal for you soon!
