Paint

PRODUCT NAME: The Original Can Gun Spray Can Tool                                     

WHERE TO BUY: AMAZON

PRICE:  $4.92

Great for spray painting projects!

Ergonomic Trigger and Handle Design
Made in USA
100% Recycled Plastic
It’s A Snap To Attach, Use and Remove

I simply LOVE this tool. I do a lot of spray painting for cool diy home projects and this is a must have. I was so glad I found this little jewel, of course, I had to buy several just in case it got worn out or broken. I am still using the original one I purchased several years ago. It simply snaps into place over the spray nozzle on top of the spray paint can. Then you can squeeze the trigger to spray without wearing your finger out trying to press down on the small spray nozzle in the top of the can. When you’re done, just snap off the tool and put it away for next time.

PRODUCT NAME:  RUST-OLEUM UNIVERSAL SPRAY PAINT

WHERE TO BUY: AMAZON 

PRICE: $6.76

Works on virtually any surface including wood, plastic, metal, fiberglass, concrete, wicker, vinyl and more
Oil-based formula with excellent adhesion prevents rust, resists fading and chipping for a long lasting finish
Fast drying formula dries to the touch in 30 minutes and covers up to 15 sq ft per can
Prevents rust and corrosion for enhanced durability
Flat metallic finish provides an attractive, rich, modern look on surfaces

I use this paint for almost any project! It is truly “universal” and has worked on every surface I have used it on from metal, plastic, and wood. It dries super fast compared to other spray paints I have used, which is useful when trying to finish in a timely manner. Used for all DIY home projects. The only drawback I have found is, on some cans, the spray nozzle will leak paint that will get on your fingers.
