My theater build is finally nearing completion and I'm freaking out about wrecking all the hard work with a subpar paint job. Can anyone recommend Wagner's Flexio 690 sprayer? It claims to spray un-thinned latex without issue. Any other recommendations?

My theater currently looks like this--please excuse the mess:







And I would like to paint it similar to "Chase the Dream" theater like this:



Thanks in advance for any assistance.

OK, I change the name of the thread to see if I could solicit any replies. It looks like most of the advice regarding sprayers is for thinned product to paint DIY screens. Maybe the Wagner Flexio is too new for reviews; however, I do like the price for $170. I did see a cordless Graco but its a little more than I want to spend.

first time I saw your thread I had to restrain myself from telling you that you should have painted all the molding before you put it on the wall, paint the raw stock, then cut and mount, last touch up nail heads and saw cuts. that way you don't have to tape or try to paint all those edges.

That makes a lot of sense, but unfortunately I hadn't picked a color yet and didn't want to slow progress even further. I'm paying the price now. I'll be adding this lesson learned to the "what I'd do differently next time" thread when I wrap this project up.
