Dated Teen Movie Room Transformed to Stylish Dining Area
Some paint and the power of the FLEXiO sprayer makes this room an instant design success.
What do we look for in a room makeover? Ease!
Picking colors, moving furniture, and preparing to reclaim a space can be overwhelming. Using a paint sprayer means the "doing" part of the project will be swift and transformative. As the paint on the walls dries, the light reflects on surfaces in ways it never has before. The effect is dramatic and airy and the room has been reborn as a new charming and functional space.
Clear out the room
First clear the room of all furnishings.
Tape off area you don't want to paint
Then use the 3M Tape'n Drape to cover the sections you want to keep paint-free.
Tape around windows and trim
The lower portion of the wall was draped so the entire section could be sprayed in one work session.
Spray in smooth, even strokes
The bottom portion of the wall consisted of cutting the paint in first from the chair rail down With a SMART Edge Roller and then finishing with the FLEXiO 3000. The coverage provided by the FLEXiO sprayer was excellent and the remarkable transformation from dark to light was nearly instantaneous.
Move to the upper portion of the walls
When the lower portion is dry, tape off the area and paint the upper portion of the wall in your second color. The FLEXiO 3000 quickly covers the walls with an even coat and uses paint more efficiently than a roller or brush.
Remove the protective covering
Remove the tape and protective wall covering. As you can see, in this room the chair rail was painted the same cream color as the top portion of the sheetrock wall.
Spray any doors
The paneled door got a brightening spray of light gray.
Spray the trim
The window frames were a cinch to paint with the sprayer nozzle set to a vertical spray pattern.
Hang accent pieces
The fuse box was sprayed the same color as the wall and disappears into the design while featuring an antique mirror.
Refinish an old dining table
Scrubbed pinewood is all the rage and looks stunning in this modern rustic setting. The Furno heat gun was used to transform a white-painted table into a stunning dining room table with a fresh look and natural wood appeal.
Use heat gun and scraper to remove paint
To restore a similar table to its original state, first set the Furno to medium. Gently hover the heat gun over the surface until the paint bubbles and then scrape the paint off the surface using a paint scraper.
Wipe with tack cloth
Wipe paint chips off with a dry cloth and then wipe the table clean with a tack cloth.
Spray accent furniture
Spray any accent furniture in a complimentary color, in this case gray. This accent table was given a fresh coat of paint and looks elegant against the lavender paint.
Set table and enjoy your new dining space
The final stripped table and simple furnishings glow in the light of the room. It’s just that easy! Now you have a beautiful dining room to enjoy.
