4. Long Strokes + Feathering
This is especially important when you're spraying a large, smooth surface. Long even strokes that slightly layer over each other and feather off at each end, is the best way to get even coverage. Feathering is the secret here people. I PROMISE, you will NOT have visible, streaky paint lines if you slightly overlap and feather your paint.
Feathering is when you push down the nozzle on your spray paint can while it's OFF of your furniture, then you slowly bring it down onto your piece, apply a long stroke of paint, and then when you're ready to lift off your surface, elevate your arm + spray can (while still spraying) upward, so that you mist the paint towards the end of your stroke. This results in a "fade" type look, that will guarantee you don't end up with hard stroke lines in your end result.
