Must Have Tools for Painting Furniture + a Giveaway!

A few things used to hold me back from bigger projects. Space, time, and uncertainty if the end result would be worth the back ache I was bound to have when it was done.

But I’ve learned a few tricks and have much better tools for getting the job done and the results have been beautifully redone pieces for my home at a fraction of the cost I would have paid buying new.

So today I partnered with Home Right to give one of you lucky ducks the chance to try this tool bundle that will have you painting like a pro!

The Home Right Finish Max was the first of these tools that I ever owned and I love it!

I’ve taken on big jobs with this sprayer! This cabinet that I turned into a bar for our dining room is my favorite, but I also updated out interior doors with a fresh coat of white paint (and a perfect finish) with it!

dining room bar cabinetbefore and after of painted interior doorsI recently tried out the spray shelter too. I had no idea that the thing would be big enough to spray really large pieces of furniture, so I started out with this small piece.

I guess now that I know I have a space to paint it, I’ll be on the hunt for a big ol’ piece of furniture!

And of course the good people at Home Right must know that the worst part of any DIY project is the clean up. So they created a cleaning kit that attaches right to your faucet so you can easily clean your sprayer.

  44. Nancy Baldridge says:

    You are an inspiration to me. After reading your blog, I am going to paint some foam leaves, a little shelf from Goodwill, and some picture frames. Your parent’s door is gorgeous, and I have b!een daydreaming about painting doors but will have to do them without taking them down. Thank you for bringing cheer and encouraging creativity. Winning this prize would be fantastic but I have already won by finding your blog.

    1. This made my day Nancy. Thank you so much for your kind words. I’ve got my fingers crossed for you! And technically you could spray doors while they are still on if you get creative with plastic sheeting and tape to protect everything around them 🙂 Hope you have a great weekend!

  45. Kelly says:

  48. Corey, I want to echo all the high praise above, You do a terrific job on your blog! If I were lucky enough to win the painter’s kit, I’d start using it immediately on a cupboard we got this past summer at the nearby Habitat 4 Humanity store to house our audio equipment,

    1. Oh my goodness! I just recently discovered that they have one of those stores near me and my kids thought that mommy was in a candy store! Hahaha. I had so many ideas swirling though my head when I was there! What an awesome place!

  49. MPaula says:

    I love that mirror. …..did you paint that as well? I have a couple bookcases that I would like to paint the smae colour.

    1. I did paint that mirror with spray paint and used a sharpie to create the design. You can see exactly how I did it in this post.

    2. MPaula says:

      Thanks Corey! I pinned that post as well.

  50. Sandra says:

    Gosh, so practical for so many projects!

  51. Beverly Schalk says:

    I plan to paint my front door — it’s been a boring white since I moved in years ago and is ready for a fresh new color. Would love to win! Thanks!!!

    1. Oooooo! A fun color on a front door is my favorite! Good luck!

  52. Kellie Zollars says:

    This would be so helpful to paint the doors in our house. Winning these would be just the push I need to tackle that project. 😉

  53. MARILYN H says:

    I plan to paint outdoor furniture and everything else I can think of. Thanks for the opportunity.

  54. Robin Defenbaugh says:

    That spray shelter is the coolest thing and huge too! Love it!

    1. It is! I was so surprised that I could literally fit a big dresser in there no problem!

  55. LeAnn says:

    I plan on painting my kitchen table, an old chest, and anything else I can! Thanks!

  56. I have fallen in love with giving pieces a second life and a second chance. My husband and I have in the last month decided to purchase a sprayer as we expect to be doing updates to our home–walls and furniture. It would be cool to win one. . . Immediately, I have a table that I rescued from a garage sale needing minor repairs and a new paint color on its very ornate curvy legs.

  57. Terri Chadwick says:

    I just checked this item on the web and it is available at my local Lowes. So, if I don’t win, I’ll be purchasing it for myself. If it had not been for your blog posting and seeing what a remarkable job the Home Max sprayer provided, I would never have even thought about purchasing this product. I’d be doing it the old fashioned way. Oh, I will also buy the tent! Awesome product!

    1. It is available at hardware stores and is so worth the investment. I’ve also seen good prices on Amazon. Good luck!

  58. I plan on painting anything I can get my hands on! Especially my kids “hand me down” oak bunk beds. Looking to give them a makeover.

  59. Belinda Gallant says:

    I am planning to repaint my living room walls along with a computer desk. This looks perfect for that job plus a few others I would like to do down the line. As an owner of the Home Right Paint Stick, I know the kind of results to expect: perfect.

  60. I have two large desks to paint as I am redoing my den, and have always wondered about spray painters vs. brushing. Thanks so much for this opportunity (and for a wonderful blog!)

  61. Irene says:

    Everything! 😉

  62. Rachel says:

    Wow! That pop up looks great! I’d love to try this stuff out! Thanks for the giveaway!

  63. C says:

    I used a paint sprayer to refinish desks for my daughters first grade classroom. The painting was SO easy and the finish was great. Unfortunately the sprayer was very hard to clean, and when I tried use it last year for my kitchen cabinets it was a total disaster. I have cabinets and furniture and deck furniture waiting for a great finish job, sounds like this great sprayer might be the ticket!

  64. I’ve studied up on the best paint sprayers and I’ve seen so manny positive posts on the Home Right from Home Depot. Life would be great with one full kit. I can imagine great projects in my future with this set!!!

  65. Debbie Hight says:

    ooooh!!!! what a GREAT GIVEAWAY!!! *crosses fingers & toes*

  66. C Ferguson says:

    Thanks for the giveaway. I would like to paint a dresser for my girls room and these tools would be handy.

  67. Sarah says:

    What DON’T I plan to paint? You provide such great inspiration as I slowly and thoughtfully renovate our 80’s ranch (hence the “paint everything!!”). I’ve heard not all paint guns are created equally, so really appreciate your recommendation.

    1. You are so welcome Sarah and thank you for cheering me on in this blogging adventure!

  68. There are so many things I’d love to paint as I’m constantly painting furniture in my home! I have been wanting to get one of these for quite some time! I think the first thing I would use it for is my dining room table!

    1. hahahaha! Good luck to you!

  70. Kairleigh says:

    So excited for this giveaway! I’ve been planning on redoing my bedroom furniture for a while now but keep putting it off because it’s going to take forever with this equipment it will be a million times faster and I could get started right away!

  71. donna wilson says:

    Omg…..I would paint everything from my refrigerator & dining room table to picture frames & jewelry boxes! Thank you so much for the chance to do so many new crafts!

  72. It’s the setting up and clean up that keeps me from painting. Looks like the tools you’ve found get rid of that excuse for me!

    1. Ugh! I know the feeling and yes these make it all so much easier!

  73. Lisa G says:

    Love the finish sprayer! I used it on my fence and cut my work time tremendously!

    I would love to spray many pieces of furniture that I have for my kids now that they are getting their own places. The spray tent would solve all of my problems! (My hubby, bless is soul, is worried about over spray. This would make it all happen!

    1. Hi Wendy. This actually doesn’t over spray that much but the shelter is a great thing to have anyway. My hubs worries sometimes too so I always plan projects when he is out of town 🙂 Hahaha. Shhhhhh.

  79. mary ballerin says:

    Cabinets, and more!

  80. Michelle says:

    1. Those projects sound so great! And thank you for your virtual high five. It is so much fun to be a part of such a creative community!

  81. Michelle C says:

    What an awesome giveaway! I have an armoire and buffet cabinet waiting for a makeover and I’d probably give my kitchen cabinets another coat since I gave up on painting them by hand!

  82. What a great giveaway! I really , really, really would put this to good use: I have a ton of secondhand furniture waiting in the garage to be upcycled with a fresh coat of paint. This would get the job done much quicker!

    1. Good luck! I know the feeling of someday projects piling up in the garage!

  83. Ali Celestino says:

    I have a lot to paint after purchasing our home and trying to make it the way we want it, I’d start with the new coffee table

    1. You are going to become a painting fool! Good luck Randa!

  88. SUCH a great giveaway Corey! I can think of a million things I’d paint with this, starting with a beautiful antique buffet table and hutch I’ve been meaning to tackle for ages!

    1. Hahaha. I think we all have those huge projects waiting for us in our garages! Fingers crossed for you Kristi!

  89. Lu says:
