Painting tongue and groove


Hi, Everyone
I recently had some tounge and groove installed in my house and was wondering if it would be beter to hand paint by brush or use the wagner spray painter to paint the ceiling as I perfer the painted look as opposed to the wood varnish look.
Is it possible to get a smooth finnish with a hand brush or should I be using a spray for this project!!??

It would have been better to prime and paint it before it was installed on the ceiling, but with that not an option any more I'd have to say the Wagner will mostly just make a mess

Roll it on, and then use a brush to brush out the "stipple" left by the roller

Buy a quality brush from a paint store, whether it is a Purdy, Wooster, Corona, or even a Sherwin Williams on Benjamin Moore house brand. Ask for advice, but expect something in the $20 range for a decent 2.5" brush, more for larger size. Add some Penetrol to the paint for an improved finish (oil based paint) , and apply with roller, then brush as suggested before.

Spraying inside a finished house poses too many issues with masking, overspray, and ventilation IMO. Spraying ANYTHING, ANYWHERE, with a homeowner quality Wagner sprayer poses too many issues for anything IMO.
