Thanks
That article is informative.
Any ideas on a specific spray gun or about how to protect walls or if renting an spray gun is a good idea? My goal is to do this on a budget?

Renting is best. Graco and Titan make some quality spray units if your local rental store has them. And, since you're on a budget, don't rule out buying a cheap Wagner. They ar e good for about one or two uses before you have to throw them away.

Your biggest issue is to make sure the surfaces you are painting are free of dust and clean. That can be a big job in a basement area. To protect walls, lots of plastic.

I bought a refurb. Graco 2900 HVLP that I love (new gun, reconditioned tubine). Cost me $49 and does everything I've asked of it - latex, oils, RDS.

Brand new is $120: http://www.lowes.com/pd_326053-89183...ductId=3142757

I hope the HVLP works out for you I have the 3900. Have you used it yet? They have some quirks if you need help just ask.
