I need help with my furniture project.

Hey! I’m sorry you’re having issues! Please join our public Facebook group and post your question there.

It’s honestly not fair to others to help people individually with a project in a private message. I am happy to answer questions about projects where it’s helpful to many people, and others can give ideas too over in the Facebook GROUP!


Where is A Ray of Sunlight located?

We’re in South East Idaho.

How to paint kitchen cabinets?

Painting kitchen cabinets is very similar to painting furniture. Though I wouldn’t personally use chalk paint or wax topcoat in kitchens because they get so much more wear and tear. 

Personally, I would follow the same steps as I did in this video about painting a TV stand with Sherwin Williams paint. But I would take extra time to clean the grease off kitchen cabinets and scuff sand before priming. (Roll the primer on instead of spraying it on. Especially if you have a lot of wood grain. ?)

I will have a specific video for painting kitchen cabinets soon!

What paint sprayer is the best?

Here’s a list of the sprayers I recommend. Best of luck! 

What is your sander called?

It’s a 3×4 Surfprep Sander.
You can read more about my setup, and see which exact one I have here.

I will warn you though, it’s an investment! Around $500!
(Totally worth it if you sand a lot!)
You can use coupon code RAY10 to get 10% off your entire purchase.

HOLY COW that’s expensive!!
Here is a great alternative that is a lot more budget friendly! $50+ attachments and foam pads! (Especially if you already have a shop vac!)

How do you decide to use a brush or a sprayer?

Honestly, if I wasn’t making videos, I would spray most everything.

But for videos I try to switch it up so you guys can see both techniques.

If it’s a very large project, I’ll still spray because brushing takes way too long. I prefer to spray.

Do you sell paint?

No, I could never stick to just 1 or 2 brands of paint. Haha

But you can find links to the paint I used in a specific project by clicking over to the blog post about that makeover.

My blog is here, at arayofsunlight.com

Where do you sell your furniture?

I used to list my furniture for sale on Etsy, my website, and locally on Facebook and Craigslist.

Now that I do videos, I don’t have the time to list everywhere, so I just list locally on Facebook marketplace. My area seems to use that the most. 

How do you know what to sell your furniture for?

For the first time ever, I’m sharing my pricing sheet – including
-what pieces are the best sellers
-how much to buy furniture for
-and how much you can sell it for!
