Meg from Green With Decor used our FLEXiO 3000 paint sprayer to give an outdated bistro set a fresh look.
What You'll Need
Here’s a look at the bistro set:
Clean the bistro set.
Stir your paint, and pour it in the sprayer’s paint cup.
Pick the right nozzle of your project. The detail nozzle is perfect for furniture painting projects.
Put together your FELXiO 3000 paint sprayer, paying attention to the direction the suction tube is facing depending if you’ll be painting upward or downward.
Set your paint sprayer settings.
Start with the air power control at about a 3 or 4 and adjust as needed.
Your material flow control setting will be dependent on what type of paint you’re using. See the FLEXiO manual for specific details.
You’ll turn the air cap on the front of the sprayer depending which direction you’re painting in.
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.
You may need to wipe the front of the nozzle to prevent bits of dried paint from messing up your paint flow.
Clean your paint sprayer.
Then enjoy your bistro set all summer long!
