How to Paint a Fence with a Sprayer
Easily paint an old, worn fence to look bright and brand new by applying a fresh coat of paint with the Wagner FLEXiO 2000 paint sprayer.
When we moved into our current home about a year and a half ago, this was our view. It was all about the fence. Truly. There were yards and yards and yards of fencing that needed a good powerwashing and a little bit of fixing. There was a fence that the previous owners had put up along the back of the property. There was a wood gate that opened up to let cars into the driveway and a chain link fence along the side of our yard. It was amazing for privacy and to eventually help us with landscaping. But as you can tell from this picture. That is a LOT OF FENCE.
We decided that it needed to be painted because it was in relatively good condition and only needed a few repairs here and there. But after all that? We were left with this. A fence that needed a makeover (before). A fence that wanted to look like this (after).
Isn't it amazing how a little white paint can completely transform a backyard? (total aside: spring helped with the backyard makeover, too.)
Adjustable spray pattern
I love it because it lets you easily adjust the amount of spray that comes out of the sprayer at any one time. You can start with it adjusted to zero and then turn it up depending on the amount of paint flow that you need. You can also adjust whether you want the paint flow to come out vertically or horizontally by turning the dial on the front of the sprayer.
Easy to use
It's so easy to use, too. You just fill up the container with paint and screw it onto the paint sprayer.
Add paint and go
No messy tubes or trying to connect with paint cans. Just add paint and go.
It has great coverage, too. You can see the before...
One coat difference
...and after here. This is just one coat of paint on the fence boards.
