We knew when we bought our current house we were going to do a bathroom renovation. The time has finally come and boy is the family excited! My current objectives are to install board and batten wainscoting, and painting the ceiling, walls, light fixtures, vanity cabinet and hardware.
For my bathroom renovation, I’ll be using the Wagner FLEXiO 2000 Sprayer which paints a wall eight times faster than a brush!

Regarding the walls, originally I was just going to paint them, but I decided to add board and batten wainscoting like I did in our dining room. Please check out that link for a more detailed look at wainscoting plans and installation.
After installing the wainscoting, caulk and spackling, and sanded (don’t forget to sand your vanity cabinet!), I laid down plastic sheeting and taped it off with FrogTape. Once the bathroom renovation prep is complete, bring out the Wagner FLEXiO 2000 Sprayer! Trying to paint the wainscoting with a brush is miserable; the FLEXiO 2000 cuts paint time down to just a few minutes.
Here’s some quick facts for this sweet sprayer:
o Covers an 8’x10’ surface in minutes: Stain: 2 minutes, Latex: 6 minutes
o X-Boost® Power Dial – 2 settings for thin and thick materials
o iSpray® Nozzle – For walls and siding
o 1 ½ quart cup covers up to a 10’ by 12’ wall in one fill
o Precise adjustments for various coatings and projects
o Lock-n-Go® split gun design for quick cleaning
o Cleans up in 5 minutes – just five parts to rinse off
Be sure to follow the instructions listed in the included manual before using the FLEXiO 2000. They also include some great tips for using the sprayer.
My existing light fixtures and drawer hardware were silver; our plan was to change the color to oil-rubbed bronze. Instead of buying new fixtures and knobs, I simply painted them with Rust-Oleum American Accents 2X Ultra Cover Oil-Rubbed Bronze Metallic Spray. What a big difference a color change makes!
Finally, our bathroom door was originally plain wood, but I changed the look by adding screen moulding and paint.
A bathroom renovation is such a great way to freshen up your home! I spent a little over a hundred dollars in materials and feel like I have a brand new room in the house. And installing board and batten wainscoting again creates a nice showpiece for the room.
