I get a lot of questions about how I paint, and which sprayer I use and how much I thin my paint. I have three sprayers, but the one I go to for all my projects is the Home Right Command Max HVLP Sprayer. I grabbed it so that I could paint Mammaw’s chair. I did not expect to be doing a video, so I’m in my regular work clothes-not pretty!
My sister Jo dropped our mom’s chair off to me a couple of weeks ago. That is a good thing, because I only have 3 chairs in my kitchen.
What you’ll need:
- Bucket of water
- Paint strainer (I bought a 2 pack of reusable net-type strainers at Home Depot)
- Paint stirrer
- Paint brush (for occasional drips/runs)
- HomeRight CommandMax Fine Finish Sprayer
I always start my paint projects turned upside down to get the underneath side first.
Paint applies best when your project is in a vertical direction.
Runs do happen, so keep a paint brush handy to catch them while they’re wet.
My first step of cleaning the CommandMax -I fill my cup with water and spray till the water runs clear. Then UNPLUG your sprayer while you clean it.
The nozzle needs to be cleaned really well.
If you need more info, here are three short videos to show you exactly how I use my CommandMax
I think that pretty much covers everything. If you don’t see the videos because you’re reading this post in your email or a reader, please hop over to the blog to watch them.

Although HomeRight furnished me with a CommandMax, I get nothing if you purchase one. I like being able to paint quickly and easily, and I am sure you do too. I like to keep my readers informed of what works for me. Your results may vary.
