Newcomers to the art of hanging drywall will be surprised at the amount of tools available to help spruce up a project. One set of drywall equipment is designed to add texture to the wall, but if you've never shopped for a drywall texture sprayer before, you'll be shocked at how expensive these units can be. The good news is you can rent these sprayers from a local tool rental center.
