Paint Sprayer Recommendations?

+1
Answered

I have had a home right sprayer for a couple years, and liked the results I got from it, but man was it a mess to work with. Just as I was starting to paint my kitchen cabinets, it finally stopped working, so in a rush, i ran to Lowes and picked up a wagner. i was excited because it said no thinning of latex paint which is all I really use. It was a nightmare. could not narrow the beam down enough and the texture was terrible. I ended up using foam roller brushes because they were a smoother finish than the air gun.


So, before I head into a another round of furniture refinishing, what are your suggestions for a spray gun to get?


Requirements:

Mostly furniture refinishes with latex paint, so a narrow focus, smooth texture. Under $150. Easier to clean.

    sprayers WILL make a mess and if you are prepared for it then it will be less of a headache. You will have to water it down a bit to work with the nozzles, but I'm sure you knew that. Taking EVERYTHING out of the kitchen will be a chore, but necessary.

    I Guess you have a pretty large area to paint? If not, I would get the rollers out instead. best of luck...

    Hello Stephanie, Do you know a paint sprayer, maybe at the Auto repair shop? who would do the job for you, as it's rather depends on technique............

    I'm not planning on spraying the kitchen cabinets - the job is already done. i'm just looking for general recommendations of sprayers by people who do furniture refinishing and small scale painting jobs like that. Thanks!
