Question removing basement ceiling tiles

I want to remove the drop ceiling in my basement and leave it open. What's the best way to to paint the wood beams and pipes. I want to paint them a dark color? Is this a good idea?

It's an OK idea and the best way is to use a airless sprayer. Do a good job of protecting walls and floors and ensure that you are not painting over anything that would get ruined - especially any electrical items like smoke detector bases.

Good Luck!
