Painting walls is a relatively easy, cheap way to change the look of a whole room. We’ve painted every room in our house (some multiple times), and a paint sprayer is a fast way to get the project done.
Or if you want another way to paint a room, paint rollers are a good option, too.
I painted both our front and side exterior doors last year, and I can’t believe I didn’t tackle them sooner! I hated that red door for YEARS, and now I love the new look!

I painted our shutters last year, too. It was the year for exterior painting projects!
Painting shutters with a sprayer went fast, and I love the new color! Paint makes such a difference.
