Once all pieces of bed have been sanded, use HVLP paint sprayer to cover all surfaces, front and back, with an even coat of primer. For the best coverage, keep tip of sprayer approximately 8” from surface of bed pieces, moving back and forth in a slow, controlled manner.
Tip: For bold-colored updates such as red, black or yellow, consider having a tinted primer mixed. This will cut down on the number of finish coats needed for proper coverage.
Spray Finish Coat
Allow primer to dry for at least three hours, or until surface is dry to the touch. Empty primer from HVLP sprayer, then load it with finish color paint. Apply two coats of finish color, keeping the tip of the sprayer approximately 8” from surface of bed pieces, moving back and forth in a slow, controlled manner. Allow finish coat to dry for one full day.
Reassemble Bunk Bed
After finish coat has dried for a full day, reassemble bunk bed using the drill and Allen wrench.
