How to Paint a Bed Indoors

Tween Bed Makeover with a Paint Sprayer

Give outdated kids’ furniture a new look for the teen years with a fresh coat of paint. This post will show you how to paint a bed using a paint sprayer.

SUPPLIES:

  • Wagner FLEXiO Paint Sprayer
  • Mineral paint (I used Fusion Mineral Paint in Ash)
  • Canvas and plastic painter’s drop cloths
  • Masking film
  • Painter’s Tape
  • Sandpaper or sanding block
  • Degreaser
  • Polycrylic topcoat (optional)

STEP 1:

Prep the bed for painting by sanding lightly the surface by hand. Depending on the original finish on the furniture, you may not need to sand before painting.

STEP 2:

Clean the bed thoroughly with a degreaser, and then wipe with a damp cloth. Allow the wood to dry completely before painting.

STEP 3:

Mask off the room for painting by spreading drop cloths on the floor and attaching masking film to the walls to create a temporary indoor spray booth.

STEP 4:

Fill the small cup that comes with the FLEXiO 4000 Paint Sprayer’s detail finish nozzle with paint. Attach the nozzle to the sprayer.

STEP 5:

Paint the bed posts, using the nozzle to adjust the spray pattern vertically.

STEP 6:

Next, adjust the spray nozzle to the horizontal orientation and paint the headboard, footboard and bed rails. Allow to dry

STEP 7:

Apply a second coat of paint, if needed, and allow to dry for at least two hours. Mineral paint does not require a topcoat, but if desired, you can spray on a polycrylic topcoat using the Wagner FLEXiO 4000 Paint Sprayer.
