Using a paint sprayer for your paint jobs

So when Dave and I moved our old shed to the other side of the yard to use as a playhouse, we purchased a new one to replace it.  Timing was not ideal as the weather turned and we were unable to get a coat of paint on it.  I was working in the yard over the weekend and realized that if I didn’t get my poop in a group….winter would be here and the shed would have no paint job….again

Let me tell you….I was not enthused to paint this thing.  So I decided to invest in a sprayer..  a Wagner Flexio 590….Spoiler……life saver!!!!

Here is a before shot, from when we were working on expanding our parking area.  The shed sticks out like a sore thumb with no paint.

thehappycrazyhouse-wagnerflexio590 Now to warn you…..there was a nice practice sheet to work on before working on the real deal….but I figured that I had a giant wall with no windows to worry about…so I could practice on my shed.  It took me a few passes to really get the hang of it.  You can see in the pick the first quarter of the wall was quite thin, but I go better and better as I went.

Crap!!!  The sprayer turned my weekend project into an afternoon project….so I kinda feel like I am getting away with something!!  It’s like those new washing machine commercials…..’Keep moving tiny people’
