Perfect project for a paint sprayer

Paint does miraculous things for a tired thrifted find! I knew it was the perfect piece for my Wagner FLEXiO 5000 Paint Sprayer. When you have that many spindles and details a sprayer is always a good choice and really the only thing I will use. Plus, I wanted an extra professional finish on my new medicine cabinet.

Tape piece off and spray away

I took my new find outside and used a satin finish black latex paint and my FLEXiO 5000 to do a quick and easy makeover. When you find older pieces like this they don’t always come apart for easy painting. The mirrors on this piece were stuck in place. If you have the same issue with your thrifted treasures, a little painters tape and a plastic drop cloth will be your best friend! Just tape off the desired areas and spray away.

Smooth finish

I am thrilled with the super smooth finish my FLEXiO 5000 sprayer provided and now we finally have ample storage in our bathroom without breaking the bank!

Quick and easy

Don’t be afraid to tackle out-of-date decor with your sprayer, it is so quick and easy and I find the more you use your sprayer, the better you get at it. Now that’s a great excuse to go junk shopping if you ask me! Look how cute it looks with a little touch of Christmas mixed in.
