To be recast as a key component of her workspace, the potting bench needed a fresh and vibrant overhaul. She turned to some paint and a Wagner FLEXiO® 890 to recast the galvanize topped piece into a useful work bench for her business. She chose to work outside in the open air, covered her driveway with a paint cloth and took the piece apart for the best possible paint application.
The outside piece was rescued from an alcove behind the garage. To begin, it was hosed off and wiped down until dry. The best way to apply the paint and maintain the galvanized surfaces was to take the piece apart.
Janna chose a bright, sunny day to spray the bench, so the atmosphere was great for drying. A latex gloss paint was chosen in black for a shiny and durable finish. The detail sprayer nozzle provides a vertical and horizontal for both paint directions on this upright piece.
