Paint Sprayers for Furniture Spraying

When it comes to paint sprayers, there are A LOT of options on the Market. You can spend anywhere from $50.00 - $2000.00 dollars on a unit. How much you need to spend depends on your plans for your sprayer.

We've owned three different sprayer units and each unit had pros and cons. Here's a short list of what we liked and disliked about each one!



Our third machine, and most expensive Brass Tacks purchase to date. We don't regret biting the bullet on the price of this bad boy one bit!! If you plan on painting A LOT this is our recommendation to you.


  • Professional grade finish

  • Gun is easy to clean and comes with a cleaning kit

  • Very Quiet

  • Light weight

  • We are also fans of the top loading gun


  • It is an expensive unit (we invested in this because of how much we use it)

  • Lid on paint holder can be a bit finicky and if you don't have it sealed properly you can end up with a big mess.

HomeRight Finish Max


This is the second (and third) sprayer unit we invested in. It was very easy to use and we loved how compact of a unit it was. The burnt out on us twice. We got about three-four months of use out of each unit and at the price of 50 some dollars. Figure we were painting Monday - Friday, spraying several times a day. This was a great unit and we really liked it, it just didn't meet our needs as far as durability was concerned.


  • Very Compact Unit

  • Easy to use

  • Quality finish


  • It's a bit heavy.

  • Burnt out after too much use (we went through 2 of these in 6 months) The filter for the unit is on the top and when you spray as much as we do in a closed space it just couldn't handle it.

Wagner Spray Max


This was the first unit we ever bought. There was a bit of a learning curve transitioning from brush to sprayer and this unit was user friendly enough that we got into the swing of things quickly. The price tag was easy to swallow, but you get what you pay for. The Wagner Spray was a very noisy unit, it had limited spraying adjustments, and the gun was all plastic and could be hard to clean. It was a decent enough unit and we don't regret starting off with our Wagner sprayer.


  • Sturdy Unit

  • Quality Finish

  • Easy to use


  • Noisy

  • Limited Control

  • Gun is mostly plastic and was hard to keep clean

Things to think about


If your investing in a sprayer there are a couple other things you'll want to purchase and think about.

Get yourself a good mask. 3M Paint Project Respirator

While your purchasing the mask make sure you get filter replacements and cartridge replacements

This is also a good time to start thinking about where you will be doing your furniture spraying. Our first "spray booth" was a pvc tent covered with clear 40 mil plastic. We now spray in a ventilated room.

Which ever route you go, remember that the internet is your friend. Do some research, read the reviews, and pick a system that fits your painting needs.
