Why Spraypainting is a Great Alternative When Painting Furniture

Spray-Paint-FurniturePaint Sprayers can save a great deal of time when you need to paint a lot of items, yet it doesn’t make sense for you to run out and buy an expense machine if you only plan on painting a piece of furniture every once in a while.  As an alternative- spray painting furniture has a lot of benefits.

Time Saved – Spray painting is a lot faster than painting with a brush, and you won’t get nearly as tired from it.  The base coat for a small piece of furniture can take roughly 10-20 minutes when being careful.

No Brush Strokes – Getting in and around beveled edges or designs in the wood with a brush can be difficult to do without showing brush strokes, but spraying the paint on makes it extremely easy!  Do be careful- don’t spray in one area for too long or the paint will to drip down the side of the furniture.

Less Mess – Although you will get a little overspray with spray paint, all that you need to do to protect the ground is lay down some newspaper, a drop cloth, some plastic, etc.  After you are done, you can simply throw the spray paint can away and newspaper, and you’re all done!

More Colors to Choose From Than in The Past – Even though you won’t have quite the same selection for colors with spray paints as with cans of paint, there are many more colors to choose from today than there were just a few years ago, and the list of colors continue to grow!  Chances are, you will be able to find the color you want, or something very similar.

Remember- you will want to paint in a well-ventilated area, preferably outdoors, or in the garage with the big door open.  Should you need a few recommendations for brands, check out Valspar, Krylon, Rustoleum, or visit your local hardware store.
