This is what my shed started out as. I wasn’t exactly in love with the color. It was boring and nondescript. I really wanted deep organic hues to add character to our backyard.

Materials Needed

How to Paint the Shed

Step One

Before starting to paint the shed, it is very important that you prepare the shed. Remove all hardware and lights, clean it properly using a pressure washer, sand it down with 180 grit sandpaper and wash is one more time to remove all the dust. Also, be sure to cover any parts of the shed that you don’t want to get paint on. See my blog post for more details on how to do this.

Step Two

Add primer to the Wagner FLEXiO 3000 paint sprayer.

Set the spray width control to high. The material flow should be to 9-10 for a primer. It can be adjusted down or up depending on the primer you use. X-boost power dial was set to high. Also, adjust the spray cap to a vertical position so the spray pattern is horizontal.

Spray the shed with a full coat of primer. Make sure to keep the sprayer about 6 inches from the wall and keep moving constantly to avoid drips.

Be sure to clean your FLEXiO thoroughly after using the primer.

Step Three

Load the FLEXiO 3000 with paint. In order to “cut-in” around the trim, I set the spray control to low and painted all around the trim.

After “cutting-in” I turned the spray control to high and painted the rest of the shed.

I added three coats of paint to the shed to get the rich color I was looking for.
