We have 4 Cracker Barrel rockers that we want to paint to match our front door, B-M Wythe Blue. Should we purchase a paint sprayer? (I don’t have the patience to paint them with a brush) or should we just send them out to be done professionally? I appreciate any suggestions.
You could rent a sprayer but it takes awhile to perfect technique. I would HIGHLY recommend just having a local professional painter do them in your color. So much easier and you’ll get a beautiful smooth finish. 🙂
Thank you. Read your reply to hubby, may tip the scales to have them done professionally! Again, thanks!
