Using a Paint Sprayer on Outdoor Furniture5:30:00 AM
Painting outdoor metal furniture can be a real pain...
Just ask me because I've painted these pieces a few times already.
The last time I used a brush and painted them a beautiful light blue color. It took me forever to get around all those curves, both tops bottoms and inside the lacey design.
I loved the color but I should have painted them white right from the beginning and now I know... I am all about the white!
Then there was the time before that it was a light green with a wooden top... gorgeous but don't ask!

So when Homeright provided me with a new paint sprayer I decided that this outdoor furniture was the absolute perfect thing to try it on.
After all... I'm a painter and this is what I do so let me try every option.
I read the directions, laid out a drop cloth, filled up the container with paint and got busy painting.
I used Fusion Mineral Paint in the paint sprayer. Fusion is great for outdoor painting because it is self sealing... yes, no waxing involved!
At first I added a little water to the paint but soon realized that the paint had such a smooth texture that it worked right out of the jar into the sprayer.
It couldn't have been easier!
I was literally finished painting these 3 pieces in 15 minutes.... tops and bottoms.
It honestly took me longer to clean the sprayer when I was finished than it did to paint the furniture but it was well worth it.
Now that I know how to clean the machine it will only take minutes next time.
There was not a lot of over spray but I do have my eye on the Homeright spray shelter next!
I'm seeing a LOT of spray painting in my future!
The furniture was replaced on my deck in a couple of hours and I sure wish I had the sprayer the first few times I painted it.
And seriously, white was the right color!
*And just an update... this painted furniture stayed out in the north east elements all winter. Covered with snow and ice for 4 months and the paint is still perfect!
