Painting projects can be fun (yes, they can), and a quick way to update the look of your place. Depending on the tools used, painting projects can either be easy or laborious, tidy or messy. This August we are going to paint the outside of our unit. Come the Fall we'll be painting some of our interior spaces. In the past, we did our painting projects with brushes, rollers, and a lot of labor. This time around, we are hoping to save on the labor and the mess by turning to Wagner.
For our interior work, we will still be using brushes for the trim and the details. However, we are hoping the Wagner TurboRoll will make quick work of the walls. The TurboRoll is a battery powered all-in-one roller/paint container. The hollow handle is actually a tube which can hold enough paint to paint an area 7’ x 10’ on one fill. This reduces the number of trips back and forth to the paint tray...less time, fewer drips, easier cleanup.
For our outside projects we will be using the Wagner Procoat airless sprayer. We like the idea of painting spindles and rails using a sprayer as they are so tedious to do using brushes. We expect, by using a sprayer, that the job will be faster and more even. Our only concern is the amount of prep work required so the overspray does not accidentally cover everything else (bushes, flowers, automobiles, cats).
We will be unpacking, assembling, and getting to know these two new pieces of Wagner painting gear this week. If the weather cooperates, we will be doing the prep work this coming weekend and painting by next Monday. We are eager to see these Wagner tools in action! [Permalink] - Wagner Painting Gear
