Spray

If this is your first time using a paint sprayer, practice on the practice sheet provided. Then start painting! Stand about 6-8 inches from your furniture piece.

Keep moving at a consistent speed, and move with the paint sprayer versus flicking your wrist back and forth. Do two coats of paint, letting the paint dry in between.
