Practically everyone has a housing project that they want to complete.

Part of that project may include you finishing doors, wooden tables, or spraying ornaments or musical instruments as decorations. And sometimes you just want to decorate because you think it will look better.

Some people choose to spray paint or stain their furniture, instruments and even cars. Some of the lacquer cans out there are really fantastic for the price and have great reviews. Here are some of the best spray can lacquers for you to look at:

Minwax 15200

Best Spray Can LacquerThis model of lacquer is ideal for interior wood surfaces. It produces a clear coat of protective finish for wood and metal. It works on bare and stained wood as well.

One of the reasons it’s so good is that it is a nitrocellulose lacquer that goes on nicely and will dry in 30 minutes or less. Note that you should warm up the can before using it and also put black tape on the sprayed item. The tip sprays well and the spray itself goes on with no bubbles, streaks or rust. It leaves a shiny finish.

These are a few of the spray can lacquer models that are available on the market, and they all have pretty good reviews. Most of them are five-star reviews with a few four or three stars in between. Those who used them had the following general consensus:

  1. Great look when finished except for a couple of mishaps that left their furniture, guitars or other items sprayed with visible streaks.
  2. Warming up your spray can before using can really help.
  3. Make sure to take your time.

Another thing to do when purchasing a spray can lacquer is to ask the salesperson if you should watch out for special spray cans or if you should watch out for fumes or other problems. It is a good idea to give yourself a large area to spray in, one of the reasons being to protect your other furniture.


The above mentioned products all got very good reviews even in the midst of a few poor ones. You can’t go wrong with purchasing these from Amazon.
