Is there a good quality canned spray paint that one could use on new interior trim and mouldings? I am finishing one window or door at a time and it is not practical for me to rent a sprayer every time, however I do not want to see brush strokes. Again, this is new trim, not existing. I have only drywall at the moment. Thanks in advance.

My I ask why you wouldnt do all the trim all at once?
I have never used any spray paint for trim or such so I couldn't tell you.But they do make a little spray can at paint suppliers that you put thinned paint in it and pump it a few times and it works like a spray can,but have never tried these either.Or they have some that use co'2 compressed air instead.

There are little sprayers that have the propellant of a spray can on top of a container that you put the paint in. They seem to work best with oil based paints though. Your local paint store should have these.

I am not doing all of the trim at once because of cost and time issues. Thank you for the advice, I will look at a paint store for the tool you suggest.
