This was the state of the backyard before.
Actually, this is more of a middle picture.
Let me go all Julie Andrews and start at the beginning. When we purchase the house about a year and a half ago, there were a myriad of fence options going on in this backyard.
(total aside: I love the word myriad and think it should be worked into as many sentences as possible along with plethora and multitudinous.)
The previous owners had put up the wood fence along the back of the property. Where you see the new wood on the fence there was a chain link fence on that side of the yard. There was also a wood gate that opened to let you into the driveway and a wood fence along the street.
That is a LOT OF FENCE.
Or a plethora of fencing.
Here are a few more pictures of the before.
We added new fencing where the chain link was and added a new top to the fence and removed the wood gate and the wood fencing close to the street to open up the yard.
The fence was in relatively good condition and only needed a few repairs here and there.
But after all that?
We were left with this.
A fence that needed a makeover.
A fence that wanted to look like….
Isn’t it amazing how a little white paint can completely transform a back yard?
(total aside: spring helped with the back yard makeover, too.)
Here’s the before.
And here’s the after.
I seriously cannot get enough of the before and after on this fence.
After we painted it, I totally forgot about how the before looked until I went back and looked at the photos.
Now just between us?
That is a LOT OF FENCE to paint.
A plethora of fence boards.
A myriad of fence panels.
A multitudinous amount of fencing.
Because we had this.
The Wagner Flexio Paint Sprayer.
I uploaded this picture so you could see what the paint sprayer looks like before it’s painted about 75 yards of fencing.
This is the paint sprayer after.
At this point it’s painted about 35 yards of fencing.
And even with paint splatters and paint spray on it?
It’s still going strong.
One of my favorite things about the Wagner Flexio Paint Sprayer is the control nozzle.
It lets you easily adjust the amount of spray that comes out of the sprayer at any one time.
You can start with it adjusted to zero and then turn it up depending on the amount of spray that you need.
You can also adjust whether you want the spray to come out vertically or horizontally by turning the dial on the front of the sprayer.
It’s so easy to use, too.
You just fill up the container with paint and screw it into the paint sprayer.
No messy tubes or trying to connect with paint cans.
Just add paint and go.
It has great coverage, too.
You can see the before and after here. We used an exterior paint from Sherwin-Williams to paint the backyard fence. It’s Sherwin-Williams Emerald Exterior Acrylic Latex paint and the color is SW 7006 Extra White.
This is just one coat of paint on the fence boards.
And one more before.
And one more after.
I seriously cannot say enough wonderful things about the Wagner Flexio Paint Sprayer.
That is a LOT of fence to paint and having a paint sprayer made the job so much easier.
The fence is finished.
The back yard is happy.
But there’s no time to rest on our laurels.
Because guess what?
(total aside: please act surprised when I say this.)
I have a MYRIAD of projects planned next for the back yard.
Or a plethora.
Take your pick.
