The BEST Paint Sprayer Giveaway!

*This post contains affiliate links and sponsored product. All opinions are mine and have not been influenced. I honestly LOVE and use this product.


Last year, I professed my love the the Finish Max by HomeRight. You can read my review about it here

At SNAP conference this year, I ran into a blogging friend who has been working with HomeRight. I gushed about how awesome the Finish Max is and she said "You need to try the Finish Max Pro! It's even better!" (As I type this, I realize that it sounds made up. I promise you, DIY bloggers really do get this excited over things like paint sprayers). Flash forward a few weeks, and I got a chance to play with my very own *Finish Max Pro



Like I said, I am a pretty big fan of the *Finish Max, so the Pro had a high standard to live up to. I can honestly say HomeRight fixed any small problems with the Finish Max, and improved the whole performance with the Finish Max Pro. 

One of the finish things I noticed what the spray control. You can adjust the spray pattern from a 1' to a 6' diameter. This really helps control the smoothness of the finish, amount of product used, and overspray. 


The motor portion has a handy cup holder for when you're spraying, and the gun itself has a hook on the top, so you never have to set it on the floor. 



The Pro version comes with a more powerful fan, 15 ft. air hose, and a separate gun and paint pot unit. This is really nice! 



The separate gun means less tired arms, the long hose means further travel from an outlet, and the more powerful fan means finer atomization. Finer atonization means the actual paint or stain droplets are smaller. This is a good thing. The smaller the droplets, the finer the finish. 

Truth time: I've struggled to spray finish or clear coats in the past. Pro painters always spray their clear coats, but when I've tried in the past, I've had mixed results. The sheen is often splotchy or textured. Not good. More than once I've ended up re-sanding and hand brushing a piece after spraying finish. 

I've sprayed Polyacrylic through my Finish Max Pro on two different furniture pieces. The both turned out perfectly! I've learned that most clear coats must be applied with a low-pressure, fine spray. In my experience, the Finish Max Pro was perfect for this. (Remember, when using any kind of paint sprayer, use a viscosity cup to thin the product, and run your paint or finish through a fine mesh before filling the paint pot.)

In addition the the fan motor, hose and gun, the kit comes with some pretty sweet accessories. You get a viscosity tester and an extra paint pot with lid (SUPER convenient for clean up or custom mixed paint). 




And this little brush is a life saver! Between the little brush and the fact that the motor is detachable from the gun, clean up goes WAY faster than the Finish Max.



Here is a little vintage dresser that got a makeover courtesy of my new paint gun. It took me 15 minutes to spray 2 coats of paint, and another 20 minutes to spray 3 coats of Polyacrylic- no kidding. 




Now for some awesome news. One of you could win your own *Finish Max Pro! Yay! Enter the Raffelcopter below for chances to win.

  42. I have so many projects that this would make easier, since we just bought our first home. I think the very first thing I would do use it on is a table that we have that needs to be completely re finished. I've avoided it so far because I have been afraid of getting an uneven finish.

My next big project is to paint all the columns, rails and trim on my house (going from an icky maroonish color to white) ... the Pro would work great!

  53. Concerning dispersed Polyacrylic with great Surface finish Sloth Executive relating to couple of varied furnishings. All the simultaneously ended up appropriately! Concerning found that a large number of transparent layers must remain put by having a low-pressure, ok squirt. In my experience, the tip Sloth Executive was first ideal for this approach.
