I made some new friends from HomeRight at the Haven conference this year. They sent me their finish max super paint sprayer and spray shelter to give it a try.  I have never used a paint sprayer before. I never tried painting a light fixture either. This was going to be a first all the way around. When I first got it in the mail I thought it looked like it was going to be hard to figure out. But I looked over the directions and read a blog post. After that, it was very easy to use.

So let’s start at the beginning. I bought this on clearance over 10 years ago. I get it two-tone so it would match whatever I was doing at the time.

My husband took it down for me. So while I sat on the floor with it while I watched tv. I cleaned it off. Took off all the globes. Gave it a light sanding and cleaned it off again.

Then I taped off the socket so the paint would not get in. I tore it little sections so it would curve around.

 

Next, I got the pant sprayer ready. I added 1/4 cup of water with the white Bear paint I got at Home Depot. Put the mix into the sprayers bowl. I made sure the tip on the gun was the one I needed. The break down is in the directions. I sprayed the grass a little until I got spray right.

The tent pops up. Easy, done. The hook is the one for plants I had in the front yard.

It took 2 coats. I used the drying time on the paint can. That was a 45 min wait.  I had a heavy hand so there were a few runs in the paint. I just sanded over that before the 2ed coat.

The hard part was getting my husband back up. LOL

I hope you enjoyed this easy update!
