Thanks, again to all that have helped me with my Ash headboard questions

Anyway, via reading (a lot) about stain application for the above headboard I think I've decided to go with an airless sprayer for finishing. Would those of you versed in their use give me some suggestions for which brand/type to buy? Also, would like to keep the maximum cost at 150.00 if possible.

I have never used one before, and do understand it will take a little practice.

TB,
Didn't see you're other thread, but why wouldn't you want to stain the headboard by hand? Ash takes a stain very nicely, and easily I might add. Stay away from minwax stains. I have had good results from Sherwin Williams oil based stains. Their interior stain line is called Woodscapes, if I remember right. They have some ready made colors but will mix up anything you want. Their stains have a bit more body too them and tend to penetrate well. I have two different high end airless sprayers and I don't use either one for staining.
