MDF Radiator/Heater Cover Part 2 #23

  • Published on Oct 7, 2018
  • So in this part 2 video, I will show you the next step in this heater cover build, I moved on to spraying the undercoat first, then after sanding I moved on to the top coat. This was a chalk paint, and probably not the best thing for spraying, but I managed to get a good finish on it
    The top is knotty pine board, I simply cut it down to size and then put 2 coats of wax on it to give it a darker rustic solid wood look to it. I'm really pleased with the cover, it couldn't have turned out better

      Glad you like it, took a while to make it all, but I thought it worth while in the end.

      Thanks for the great feedback Mike, a review on the sprayer is very much in the pipeline. I tend to buy tools at prices I can justify, I only bought the sprayer as it was 25% off so I took a gamble on it, pleased I did

    Nice result. A job well done.
    What are your thoughts on the electric sprayer? I've always been a bit wary of them myself, but they seem to be hugely popular now, so maybe they have improved some?

      Thanks Pete, I bought the sprayer from my local Homebase when it closed about 6 months ago, it was 25% off otherwise I wouldn't have bought it. I personally hate painting with a passion and the sprayer makes the job a lot less involved. There is overspray, so have to be careful not to get it everywhere, but it does leave a really nice finish, it's really easy to clean, and if using water based paint, you can water it down slightly and it will spray fine

    I can't decide if it's bristolian or Gloucestershire but either way it's very familiar.
    Keep up the great work buddy 👍

      Well, it's neither, but you are very, very close indeed. It's bang in the middle, South Gloucestershire it be! 🤣

      Thanks Philip, I always like to try to make something rather then buy it, mainly because I'm to tight to buy it 😂
