This isn't a glamorous DIY project, but was necessary in our home. Many of you know we have been renovating the entire interior of our home since late spring. The previous home owners smoked and right away we knew we would need to paint and update the flooring. We ended up painting nearly everything in the home... walls, trim, ceilings, doors, etc. and eventually the smoke smell seemed to go away. We were under a time crunch to get moved in though and I made the decision to clean the closets and not take the extra time to paint them. Mistake!!
A few months into being in our home, I began to smell a faint presence of smoke on our clothes. It was then I knew I had to paint the closets ASAP! Since it was also time to go through my girls clothes for the upcoming season, I decided to kill two birds with one stone and get to work. I hired a babysitter and was determined to finish the closet makeovers as quickly as possible. Our girls share a room and their closet was the first one to be painted and organized so I'll share the details with you here.
I debated painting the closets with a roller, but I like to work as efficiently as possible and knew I would save a ton of time using my HomeRight sprayer.
You may be thinking, "What? Use a paint sprayer indoors?" The answer is absolutely! I simply prepped the space, made sure I had proper ventilation and used non-toxic paint. Below are a few additional tips.
Painting the closets literally took me minutes using my HomeRight Super Finish Max Extra HVLP Paint Sprayer.
Have you ever used a paint sprayer? This was the third big project we used ours on and the time you save is astounding! I love the HomeRight sprayer because it can be used in a variety of ways from furniture and cabinets (see our first DIY cabinet project here) to fences and walls, exterior jobs (see our mini-barn makeover here), and it covers a wider array of projects with less thinning and hassle. You can also spray oil or water based materials such as: chalk type paint, milk paint, latex paints, enamels, primers, clear sealer, polyurethane, stain and varnish.
Overall, I'm SO happy with how the results of the makeover. With around $15 in paint, our closets look brand new and the lingering smoke smell is gone! Our girls are all set for the upcoming season and I was also able to get rid of two sacks of clothing that was too small. Double win!!
