Oh friend. This swing. This swing was a wedding gift, lovingly made by a dear family friend. Since we have been married 19 years this year, the swing is definitely in need of a face lift. I’m going to share a few paint sprayer tips in this video and show you how easy it was to makeover our beloved swing with my trusty Wagner paint sprayer. I’d like to thank Wagner for sponsoring this post, all opinions are my own!
An extra sweet note to this swing…it’s patterned after swings my granddaddy used to make when he was still alive. Granddaddy loved woodworking and made swings for everyone. I never got one of his, but our friend did and built swings inspired by the pattern, so our swing is like a next generation granddaddy model. This swing has hung in all our homes except the last one and I’m determined to have it front and center in this house! When I took a look at it though, it seemed a tad tired and in need of rejuvenation. Luckily that isn’t more than a little paint can fix (wish it were that easy for tired mamas ???? ). I busted out my Wagner paint sprayer for this makeover because there is NO WAY I could paint down in all the cracks and crevices of this old swing and have it come out as good as I knew the sprayer would do. Plus it was about a million times faster.
This quick video will show you how easy it is to spray your outdoor furniture for spring and summer, watch for useful tips and techniques to get the job done professionally. I am happy to answer any questions you might have, ask away in the comments!
My friend Amy also updated her DIY outdoor kitchen sink, it is a great project you need to check out for more outdoor patio ideas and paint tips. Well, the paint job turned out fantastic, silky smooth, even coverage in a stunning black. Now I need to decide if I find a place to hang the swing OR add legs to it and make it a bench for now.???? What do you think? I am leaning toward bench because I don’t have the perfect hanging spot at our home. Any other suggestions welcome! Friend, I truly adore my Wagner FLEXiO paint sprayer and if you are interested in getting one for your makeover needs you can one here.Here are a few other projects I’ve done with my paint sprayer if you’d like more tips and ideas!
