After living in a house for five years its easy to continue accepting certain things looking the way they do. Exhibit A: The fence on the garage side of our house.


It’s pretty sad looking, huh? What made it even worse was that I dreaded and procrastinated painting this because I knew it would take hours.

Or would it? Luckily, because of my friends over at Wagner Tools, spending hours upon hours to paint the fence was not the case! They saved the day when they sent me the Wagner FLEXiO 890 Paint Sprayer. I’m just going to take a moment to brag about FLEXiO 890.  The case that it comes in is so durable and convenient for carrying it around.  It’s perfect for indoor and outdoor painting projects AND the sprayer itself is super lightweight. Take a looksie and see for yourself.

Once I set everything up, I put my paint in the sprayer and was ready to go. I went with a brown because that’s what the neighbor had already painted one portion of the fence, so I tried to match the color as best as possible.  It’s a chocolate brown and I love it!


There wasn’t much prep work since it was an outdoor fence so I got started quickly.

The nice thing about this sprayer is that you can plan to spray in vertical or horizontal patterns. Since the fencing is long planks, I set my sprayer up so that it was in the vertical position.


You’re never going to believe this but from start to finish, this project only took me 2 hours and this includes clean up! The actual painting of the fence, which was approximately 50 feet long and 8 feet high only took me an hour and a half. Look how beautiful it turned out!


Just for good measure, I’ll leave you with a before and after to feast your eyes on. 🙂
