So I bought a sprayer for the project. I bought a Wagner. (For the record I really do like it) I thought that and the stain was all I needed. Boy was I wrong. So in order to keep others from going down the same misinformed path that I did. I am going to share my list of Do's and Don'ts.
Do gather the appropriate supplies. Don't assume one measly piece of paper towel will be enough.
Do Protect Your Work Surface Before You Open and Pour the Stain
Do tape off your house if you are using a sprayer.
Don't assume you can get over spray off with soap and water. Or even after using mineral spirits, graffiti remover, and a pressure washer.
Do Pull up the weeds poking through the fence.
Did I already say read the instructions?
So yeah, I still have brown stain residue on my house and I'm not sure how to fix it. Learn from my mistakes and be prepared. Also, the paint sprayer made the job go by so much quicker which left me time to clean the mess I created up.
