Did you know I’m going to SNAP in Utah? Homeright.com is sponsoring me and I’ll be helping Gina Luker (The Shabby Creek Cottage) do a fun DIY paint session where bloggers can experience the Homeright Finish Max for themselves.
I’m so excited to see the folks from Homeright again. I have enjoyed being a Brand Ambassador for them over the last few years. They are good people and a wonderful company.
Today on the Homeright.com/diy site, I’m showing you how to quickly and easily paint wooden symbols for home décor.
These are the awesome symbols that bloggers can paint themselves at the Snap conference in Salt Lake City, Utah. Yep, you heard that right, hands on demonstrations and doing it yourself right at the conference, using a Homeright Spray Shelter.
I didn’t have the paint on hand that we’ll be using at the conference, so I chose some colors that are similar for the symbols.
Because these symbols are small, they will take a minimum amount of paint, so I was cleverly trying to work in a way that I wouldn’t have to clean my Finish Max in between each symbol. I was successful!
I started with the @ symbol and white paint in my cup. Notice how wet the drive is—I had ONE window of opportunity to do this between rain showers.
Next up was the arrow sign. I used a separate paint cup and added a little of the white from the first paint cup to lighten the paint I had on hand.
Then I did the hash tag # symbol by adding a little turquoise paint from the milk jug into the paint cup that held the white paint. I did use a clean pickup tube but still hadn’t cleaned the sprayer.
Last up, because it was black, and the darkest color was the ampersand symbol. I got another paint cup and poured the tiniest amount of paint in it—it barely covered the bottom of the cup. I rinsed the turquoise pickup tube slightly, knowing that only a small portion of turquoise from the sprayer would end up on the wooden symbol.
See? No turquoise paint showing.
The tiimestamp on the first photo is 12:53, and the timestamp on this last photo after I painted all the symbols and cleaned up the sprayer is 1:25.
So, hop over to Homeright.com/diy for a few more details and the “after”. I love quick and easy projects with my Homeright Finish Max.
If you’re a blogger, and you are attending SNAP 2016, be sure to find me and say hi!
ps what should I do while in Salt Lake City during my downtime?
