raised panel wall

The Great 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.

The Dilemma

Turning a raised panel wall (fashioned from home center closet doors) into a sophisticated dining room wall.

The Solution:

Stain the raised panels gray with a FLEXiO 3000 and a water based stain.

You Will Need:

Step 1:

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.

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.

Step 2:

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.
