Good question!! It's a wonderful classic home - built mid-century with great bones! That being said - the doorways were "small" (28" bath, etc.). Don't know WHY the last owners skipped those "details" in their updates, but whatever! They did install ALL new windows (with a 20 yr. transferable warranty) and numerous other very pricey changes!
We are loving the challenge - and the views!

We are pluggin' away at our project (slowly!). Right now we're are trying to perfect HLVP spraying for doors and trim. Primer went very well today and the first coat of painting did also. But on the 2nd coat of paint we had numerous runs appear (did not seem to notice them until AFTER the spraying was done.)

Primer is 123 thinned at 10%, then doors sanded down before finish.
Finish coat is Muralo Satin, thinned at the company's recommended rate of 1/2 pint per gallon (with water). I think for the next set of doors we will back off the water some.

In the meantime, what is the BEST way to fix the places that have runs?

Depends how bad. Because they are fresh, they will probably be soft.
I would carefully carve off as much as you can with a sharp putty knife, sand down what is left. If that is still noticeable I would spackle that with Elmers wood filler, sand and reprime the spot.
Try lighter coats. That is the whole trick of spraying- enough but not too much.
Keep equal distance from door for whole pass. Start before- end after.
follow through.

Great - thanks! I also read that you can try to rub out the run with a clean rag and denatured alcohol...are you familiar with that method?

Ya- Denatured is a solvent for latex, might be worth a try.
I find solvent fixes often make a mess of the surrounding area too - I guess finesse is the key.
Just took some runs out of a clients paint job using the above method.

We have FINALLY finished all the painting on this level of our project!
Thanks for everyone's advice and patience!

I have written a detailed account of our trial and error with the HVLP - hope it is helpful to someone.

Carpet goes in next week, and then I will put up a couple more pics.

Oil based paint tends to turn yellow after a certain time depending on what product you use. Also, when certain areas of the painted surface do not receive light they may turn yellow. Try to use superior quality paints that are specially formulated to prevent yellowing.
Good Luck!
