The Great Feature Wall

Tongue and groove, bead board and raised panels are all the rage as wall treatments, and they can all be painted easily with our sprayers. Here, the FLEXiO 3000 tackles a raised panel wall with water based stain.

DIFFICULTY: Beginner

How to Create Feature Wall

This projects shows you how to turn a raised panel wall (fashioned from home center closet doors) into a sophisticated dining room wall. We use stain the raised panels gray with a FLEXiO 3000 and a water based stain.

Fill Stain Sprayer

Fill the cup of the FLEXiO 3000 sprayer with stain and attach the detail nozzle. Since the wainscot raised panels are vertically oriented--set the sprayer to a vertical spray pattern.

Adjust the FLEXiO stain sprayer control

Because stain is much thinner in consistency than paint, set the sprayer to low and test the spray coverage on a piece of cardboard before increasing the spray power.

Spray feature wall with stain

Hold the sprayer eight to ten inches away from the surface of the wall because of the thin stain. Spray in an up and down pattern over the wall for the most thorough application.

Let it dry thoroughly and repeat if necessary.
