Last year I found this adorable wooden sled for $5 at a local thrift store and I decided to snatch it up for a little Christmas crafting. The problem that I think many of us face this time of the year is being able to spray paint during the winter months! It’s hard to spray paint in the winter! So today I thought I’d first share with you how to spray paint in cold weather using the HomeRight Spray Shelter and HomeRight Max Spray Painter, as well as how I took this adorable wooden sled and turned it into a fun piece of holiday decor!!

HomeRight Turn Table for Spraying (not required, but SO helpful)
First and foremost, let’s chat about the HomeRight Spray Shelter, Finish Max Paint Sprayer, and turn table. The Spray Shelter was set up in my basement (it’s unfinished) and it leaves me the PERFECT space to paint during the winter months without any issues! The HomeRight Max Paint Sprayer is amazing to paint with an takes all the paint you can think of. I used a Chalk Paint to paint my sleigh and it worked perfectly and coated my sleigh with the perfect mist of paint and in no time at all. The spray shelter caught all the mess while I was spraying and the turn table made it so that it was easy and quick to paint my sleigh without having to wait for it to completely dry. These three products combined make for the PERFECT way to paint during the winter!
The spray shelter literally just pops up into place and has a great little bag to fold it back up into and store away quickly when not in use.
To paint my sleigh, I emptied my chalk paint into my Finish Max and then added a little water to thin it out a bit. I placed my turn table in the back of the shelter with my sleigh on top and then got to painting!!
I did about three coats of paint and then let it dry overnight. The next day I came back and with a paintbrush I applied my FolkArt Brushed metal paint in silver to the bottom of the sleigh to give it a great, realistic look. Then I taped off a line across the center of the sleigh and used the Brushed Metal paint in black to create the black “belt” on the sleigh. Finally, I used the Silver Brushed Metal paint again to create a cute belt buckle on the sleigh…as a little ode to the Santa-Claus. 🙂
So easy and fun right…and it makes the perfect outdoor accessory for your front porch…
…or you can put it underneath or beside your Christmas tree with some pretty bulbs on it.
I can’t wait to share more holiday projects with you guys, but in the meantime, I hope this simple DIY helps you think outside the box with your holiday decor this year! Don’t be afraid to buy things that you want to paint just because of the cold weather outside!! You can paint indoors safely with just a little added help from the folks at HomeRight!
