How to Paint a Room with an HEA Paint Sprayer

Learn how to easily paint the walls in a room using a Wagner High Efficiency Airless Paint Sprayer to get a great finish in a fraction of the time.

Hi there! My name is Sara Davis, and I blog about my DIY home décor adventures at Sincerely, Sara D. Today I’m going to show you how easy it is to paint a large space using Wagner’s Control Pro 130 HEA.

Before you being, you will want to cover anything you don’t want painted. We moved almost everything out of the room except for the couches and tv stand but made sure to cover them well.

Once everything is out of the space (or covered well), you are ready to go!

Materials Needed:

  • Painter’s Plastic Sheeting
  • Painter’s Paper Roll
  • Packing Tape
  • Painter’s Tape
  • Primer
  • Paint
  • Face Mask (I had trouble finding one during the middle of the coronavirus pandemic)

Tools Needed:


You will need to prep the walls and floors for the paint. I taped off the carpet and covered the base of the room with a roll of brown paper and used painter’s tape and clear plastic to cover the windows (the clear plastic allowed light to come in). To see my trick for painting baseboards on carpet, go HERE.


You will want to prime the space using the Control Pro HEA. I opted not to prime because I had painted the space less than two years ago, and I bought a quality paint.


Paint the space with two coats with the Control Pro HEA – allowing the first coat to dry before applying the second coat.

The first time I painted the room, I painted in by hand and it took DAYS. This time, it took me under three hours from start to finish.
