You can’t beat a can a spray paint and a little creativity. I still use spray paint often but if I have a big project I use my dual speed paint sprayer as I did on our bathroom vanity makeover.

Most of the time a good cleaning with a degreaser is all you need before you start your spray paint project.

Spray Paint supplies for most projects

When I buy spray paint I am usually choosing a brand based on the color I am looking for since you can’t custom mix it like you can a can of paint. Next I look for a spray paint that has paint and primer in one. Those seem to work really well for on most brands across the board. If you like a particular brand because it has worked well for you then great!
