Shed Transformed into Guest Room
Painting an entire interior takes a weekend instead of weeks on end.
An island shed is transformed into a pristine cottage getaway with some style and with paint wash using a Wagner FLEXiO 5000. A fresh coat of white gives this cast-off out building a new life as a relaxing oasis. The Wagner sprayer made light work of spraying ceiling trusses, walls and built-in details.
Washed in white
When interior designer Megan Whitehouse wanted to turn her former shed into an easy, breezy guest house, it needed a bit more than just a thorough cleaning. The interior got a quick makeover with plank boards to cover studs, and then a pristine white spray that unified the space and made it all fresh, inhabitable and cottage-quaint. Spraying from the top down prior to installing a laminate floor made it easy to rehab the space quickly.
A closed ceiling would have confined the space and taken away the cottage appeal. Spraying the trusses added light and helped to clean up years of unpainted age. Spraying from the top down prior to installing a laminate floor made it easy to rehab the space quickly.
Choose the right paint
This dramatic transition wouldn't have been possible without the right white paint.
Spray same paint throughout
Megan chose Benjamin Moore Bright White in a satin finish and sprayed it throughout the space. The painted ceiling allows natural light reflection and gives track lighting an additional boost in the evening. The overall effect is a bright, luminous, open air space.
Create a bathroom space
A bathroom was created.
Light and luxurious
A new vanity base cabinet was installed and sprayed to match the sink. Once dry, the counter was reattached. A simple coat of interior white makes the one room abode seem light and luxurious.
Painting ceiling trusses is like painting a wicker basket with a brush. Time consuming! The sprayer quickly and easily coats all the crevices and crannies and provides a flawless, glowing result. The FLEXiO® 5000 has the right amount of power to make this job fast and easy.
A satin finish has a nice layer of protection for the wood.
Primer in the paint means it has one-coat coverage.
"This sprayer is transformative," says the happy cottage owner. "It turned a dingy out-building into a spectacular living space."
