Default Spray

Spraying will give you a better finish.

The best finish will be from the prep work prior to painting. Go to your local paint store, Sherman-Williams/Porter Paints, tell them what you are painting and ask their recommendation on the type of paint to use. Don't take short cuts on the prep to get the best finish.
