Hello friends!

Welcome to another #MonthlyDIYChallenge! Y’all know how much fun I have teaming up with my talented bloggy friends the first Wednesday of each month to see the different ideas we can come up with from the very same starting point!

This month we’ve teamed up with HomeRight to show y’all how we put their brilliant spray shelters to work as we took full advantage of the incredible power of paint to transform some truly old & tired pieces!

Ahhhh, the incredible power of paint! 12 GORGEOUS makeovers with just a bit of paint!
 

We all know the power of paint. It’s no secret friends. It’s inexpensive, easy to use and the possibilities are endless really – from walls, to furniture and everything in between, paint is by far the easiest way to transform the look and feel of pretty much anything!

But…

As simple as it is, painting can also be incredibly time consuming. Even painting the tiniest thing, can take hours if there are lots of little details or designs to work around. Plus, it can take some skill to make things look “professional” – read: not streaky, clumpy, uneven or otherwise messy. And honestly, who has hours to waste painting something when they really don’t have to?

Which is why this brilliant little machine has been SO life-changing for me! With all the renovations and crafty projects I’ve done through the last few years, I certainly know how to work a paint brush, buuuuut, since discovering how quick and easy this paint sprayer makes things, I find myself avoiding the brush and roller at all costs now.

It just makes SUCH quick work of even the biggest of projects!

Don't replace that old door, update it in just three simple steps!
 

Remember those doors I painted up for our farmhouse style hallway? I had all six painted up with two coats of paint in just minutes!

MINUTES!

Seriously, where has this thing been all my DIY life?!
 

And, just when I thought things couldn’t get better, I discovered this

A way to paint without the mess!

Ahhhh, I couldn’t wait to test this thing out – hubs and I had the spray shelter set up in just a few minutes and away I went, trusty sprayer in hand.

I swear, the only way this could have been any easier is if I had found this smaller table top shelter first (which is already on it’s way now too!), though I know this bigger one will be getting a ton of use too!

  1. Such a beautiful tray Kristi, and perfect for your office! It’s coming together beautifully! xo

  2. I’d love to paint a few picture frames that I have, they are white, but not the same white. I’d love to do them all at once and get a uniform look. Then, who knows! I might just go big and paint a dresser I have!

  3. Lovely job, Kristi! My husband is going to check out this paint sprayer!

    Your home is beautiful! Just love to read your posts and see all your lovely pictures! I am new to your blog and am really enjoying it!

    Kristi, would you be able to tell me where I could find the “word” picture you have hanging in your hallway — “Count my blessings, Practice kindness, etc.” Would love to purchase one for our “country” home! Thanks, Kristi!

    Have a great day!

  4. I have several items that need painting but my biggest are 4 outdoor ancient metal chairs. I am new at painting items so this sounds so exciting. I will check out your projects and tutorials to learn how.

  5. I would first paint my outside door, have some outside lantern lights that need refreshing. Enjoy reading your blog. Lovely home.

    1. Thank you SO much Linda! Sounds like you could put this sprayer to good work! I’m actually thinking about taking on our front door too! Happy painting friend!

  6. Oh this would be so awesome! I have so many projects that need painted, lol. I just started using spray paint and always wondered how a sprayer would work? Thanks for the chance to win!!

  7. I need this in my life! My husband has a huge “professional” paint sprayer but it rarely makes its way to our house. I could do sooo many of our projects around the house with this guy! Love it!

  8. What an awesome prize package! My husband and I have been wanting to tackle our kitchen cabinets for awhile so this would definitely come in handy for that.

  9. This post has really inspired me. I have been wanting to paint my bedroom furniture for a long time and you have made it look so easy!! I would LOVE to have one of these!!

  10. I have so many things I want to paint and a paint shelter would help so much!!! I want to paint my doors and shutters asap!! 🙂

  11. Well this post came at the perfect time! (maybe a bit late!) I was spray painting the legs of a table I am refinishing in our garage last week and the little paint particles definitely made their way around the garage- oops!
    My husband was not very pleased and cleaned out the entire garage on the weekend to get rid of the little flecks of white haha! Thank goodness they didn’t settle on his motorcycle or I would really be in trouble! The spray shelter would be perfect for me since my husband would definitely prefer I keep my project-ing out of the garage now 😛

  12. That is quite awesome! I would love that sprayer because I have a kitchen table and the desk I am at right now that are seriously in need of a spruce-up.

    1. Thank you! I’m head over heels in love with that gorgeous green too! And that spray shelter has been such an amazing tool to help control the painting mess!

  13. That really cleaned up nice Kristi. It really makes a difference when you have the right equipment to get things done quickly. And we know we have much more important work than painting.

    1. I’m SO sorry Kate! We’re actually in the process of switching ad providers, which should make our user experience so much better in the weeks to come!!! I hope you’ll give us another chance!

I can't wait to hear your thoughts?
