Best HVLP Paint Sprayers for Furniture

A few notes before we dive into them: All of these sprayers are capable of spraying latex, chalk paint, polyurethane, stain, and acrylic paint. Some of these sprayers require the paint to be thinned out more than others though.

Wagner Double Duty Paint Sprayer

**Update: I don’t think that this is really one of the best HVLP sprayers you can use anymore. BUT I’m still including it on this list because I’ve talked a lot about it and done videos with it. It was my very first paint sprayer, so I think it’s a great way to compare the other sprayers.

Wagner Double Duty Paint Sprayer is the first paint sprayer I used.

And I used it for 3 years before upgrading to a professional level paint sprayer. In that time I bought 3 separate ones so I could use them for paint and poly and not have to clean out the sprayer.

I also thought a time or two that it was giving out on me, so I bought a new one. But it turns out, they all still work fine (it must have been the paint or the heat of the day that I was working in. haha)


  • I’ve been able to get a super fine, perfect finish with it.
  • It’s pretty cheap, usually under $80.
  • Comes with a viscosity cup to help with thinning paint
  • No air compressor needed
  • Very portable


  • And I’ve also had many days where it didn’t spray perfectly.
  • Thinning paint is a must. It’s not even an option.
  • Thinning the paint using the viscosity cup is even more of a must.

There is just no way that it can spray thick chalk paint without adding some water to it. I actually tested it with thick chalk paint and it wouldn’t even spray it.

I also tested it with paint that is around the thickness of latex paint and it was able to spray it, but it splattered SO BAD and struggled. When you thin paint out to a 40-second run out time with the viscosity cup, it sprays great!

#1 Wagner FLEXiO 3000 Paint Sprayer

Wagner FLEXiO 3000 Paint Sprayer (also known as the 590)

wagner flexio 3000 paint sprayer

I recently tried out the FLEXiO 3000 (with the detail finish nozzle).

Update: Wagner came out with a new model, the Wagner FLEXiO 3500. The only difference really, is that the 3500 has an on/off switch that keeps the motor running, removing any chance of splattering that used to occur right when you start spraying.

With the 3000, you can avoid the splattering if you pull the trigger only part of the way back to let the motor start running, and then pull it all the way back to start spraying. That on/off switch on the 3500 is amazing to have!

After I purchased it and used it, I dug deeper into the specs of the 3000 vs the specs on the Double Duty Sprayer. The Double Duty is 2 psi while the FLEXiO 3000 is 2.6 psi.

The Double Duty sprayer is definitely not as powerful though. The Double Duty is 300 watts while the FLEXiO is 500 watts.

The FLEXiO 3000 has the power control knob. But when I sprayed with the first time, I didn’t notice that it made that much of a difference. But since then I have noticed a much bigger difference between the Double Duty and the FLEXiO series.

The FLEXiO sprays thicker paints than the Double Duty can, and the power control knob does make a difference in the power.

Both the Wagner Double Duty and the Wagner FLEXiO series are easy to clean though! Here is how to clean a Wagner FLEXiO Sprayer. It’s much easier than any other sprayer out there!

  • I’ve been able to get a super fine, perfect finish with it.
  • It’s still kind of budget friendly, around $160 usually.
  • No air compressor needed
  • Very portable
  • Comes with another nozzle for painting fences and other projects.
  • It can spray thick chalk paint without thinning, but it’s not the easiest, and the finish is very bumpy and splattery.
  • So it needs the paint to be thinned, but it doesn’t have to be thinned out as much as the Double Duty.


  • And I’ve also had times where it didn’t spray perfectly. It really splatters when you first start the motor, so you have to make sure you pull the trigger only partly to get it started before you pull the trigger all of the way back.
  • Doesn’t come with a viscosity cup to help thin paint

It can spray thick chalk paint and latex paint, but it won’t look very good. Thinning the paint by 10-20% will make it look good though! Learn more about how to thin paint for Wagner FLEXiO sprayer here.

#2 Homeright Super Finish Max

The latest paint sprayer I have tried is the Homeright Super Finish Max. I know a lot of furniture painters who use it and love it!

And I know it’s possible to get a perfectly fine finish with it because my friend Courtney at TwigandThyme on Instagram uses it and she is a perfectionist.

The psi and power stats that I can find says that it is 3-4 psi, and 450 watts. Honestly, I was really impressed with this HomeRight Super Finish Max!

Check out my full HomeRight Super Finish Max paint sprayer review here. And read through my Wagner VS HomeRight paint sprayers comparison to learn more. Here’s my guide on how to clean HomeRight paint sprayers.


  • I was able to get a perfectly fine finish with it.
  • It’s still kind of cheap, around $100 usually.
  • No air compressor needed
  • Very portable
  • Comes with 3 metal tips and 2 air caps to narrow down the spray you need. (I love having these options more than the “power” option on the FLEXiO 3000.
  • It can spray thick chalk paint without thinning, but it’s not the easiest for the sprayer to spray it, and the finish is very bumpy and splattery.
  • So it needs the paint to be thinned, but it doesn’t have to be thinned out as much as the Double Duty.
  • It doesn’t spit as much as the Wagner’s do, especially when you just get the motor started!


  • Doesn’t come with a Viscosity Cup to help Thin Paint
  • The head of the sprayer doesn’t disconnect from the motor of the sprayer, so cleaning is a little bit harder.

Best Professional Paint Sprayers for Furniture

If you’re ready to upgrade, here are the top professional paint sprayer options.

Fuji Paint Sprayers

Fuji paint sprayers are some of the very best paint sprayers out there. Their customer service is out of this world. And they have a full lineup of sprayers, depending on how powerful of a sprayer you’re looking for.

I’ve only used one of the Fuji spray paint sprayers, but I would easily recommend their products because I know they are quality, and work well.

Fuji Q4 Platinum Paint Sprayer

I have the Fuji Q4 Platinum paint sprayer. Honestly, it was a little hard for me to spend that much on a paint sprayer.

But, I was wasting so much time trying to get a perfect finish all of the time. So I took a leap of faith that this sprayer would make it easy to get a perfect finish.

Looking back, I’m so glad that I took the leap. I’ve saved so much time because I’m not messing around with it, trying to get the paint and settings just right. Honestly, seriously, truly. It has been a game changer for me and my business.


  • It continues to create a perfect finish with basically every paint.
  • It’s portable, but it’s as powerful as huge air compressors.
  • It can spray latex and thick paints without thinning. (Though I still like to thin my paint to get an even better finish.)
  • You can customize it with accessories and many different sizes of tips.
  • It isn’t finicky at all.
  • It’s mostly metal! The other sprayers are basically all plastic.


  • It comes with a large price tag.

P.S. The Q stands for “quiet”. Basically, it’s quieter than the mini mite series of sprayers from Fuji.

If you’re wanting to save some money, go for the Mini Mite 4 instead of the Q4. They are basically the same, other than the Quieter factor.

Invest in a high-quality, expensive HVLP sprayer or choose an affordable sprayer?

When you’re thinking about getting an HVLP sprayer for painting furniture, the big question is whether to splurge on a top-notch, pricier one or opt for a more budget-friendly choice.

The main thing to think about is your level of experience and the frequency of use. If you are an experienced painter who frequently works on furniture projects, it may be worth investing in a higher-end HVLP sprayer that will provide consistent, professional results.

However, if you are a beginner or only work on occasional projects, an affordable HVLP sprayer can still get the job done without costing you a fortune. It’s important to do your research and read reviews to find a quality, budget-friendly option.

Another factor to consider is the type of furniture you will be painting. If you primarily work with smaller pieces or projects, an affordable HVLP sprayer may suffice.

But if you often work on larger or more detailed pieces, you should go for a high-quality sprayer that can handle the job with precision and efficiency.

Ultimately, it’s important to weigh your budget and needs before making a decision on which type of HVLP sprayer to invest in.

If you start with a more affordable option and find that you need more power or features, you can always upgrade in the future, especially after gaining more experience and confidence in your painting and spraying skills.

Whichever you choose, proper maintenance and care can greatly extend your paint sprayer’s lifespan and keep it working effectively for years to come.
