This is the spray booth in my shop. It is 10’ x 12’ inside with a 10’ ceiling. I have a cabinet built just outside the booth to hold all my paint stuff including the Turbinair HVLP system I use to spray. It has an exhaust fan high on the back wall. I built an enclusure for it to accept a filter. Also the doors have filters in them so I can filter the air comming in and out. I also mounted four 8’ fluorescent fixtures vertically in each corner to provide proper lighting. I still want to paint the inside white to help with light dispersion. I have used this on several projects including both Mary Beth’s Bed, and Avery’s Vanity (see projects) and am quite pleased with the results. I am still developing good spraying skills and techniques, but I believe I have the right equipment now.

Very slick. I guess that’s how you get such great finishes on your projects. Was this an after-thought or did you design your shop with this in mind?

Wow, nice setup! Wish I had a spot like that (and an actual workshop, HVLP system, etc…) :)

Just keep adding test ‘spots’ on the walls and you’ll eventually get it all painted!
