Using a Paint Sprayer on Outdoor Furniture

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 lacy 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 this time when I was ready to paint 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 or faster!

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.  I know now how to clean the machine, it will only take minutes next time.

I'm seeing a LOT of spray painting with Fusion Mineral Paint in my future!

The furniture was replaced on my deck in a couple of hours and seriously, the Casement white I chose was absolutely 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!
