My spray booth

I really needed an enclosed spray booth. What to do, What to do. I have this area on the side of the barn that use to park my tractor. Then I needed a place for my plywood / scrap wood cart. So the cart parked where the tractor used to. But then, I figured that would be the perfect place to put the spray booth. I did it cheap. I just did a little frame work and enclosed it with plastic sheeting. I framed out the front for a big breathing door. Added 2 20” high velocity fans (for exhaust) ,covered by some a/c filter material and on the left side , I built drying racks for all the things Im spraying. As far as lights go, I have a 8 foot florescent fixture toward the front area (where the racks are) and I have 2 commercial jobsite 500 watt halogen fixtures above the spraying area. It gives off nice natural looking light. The booth is not real wide but good and long. 8 foot wide by 24 foot long. Took me one day to complete and I have done some pretty nice finishing in there already.
Thanks for checking out my booth, Bob

looks like a really nice sit up, I dropped some plastic from my garage door to make an encloser with a fan at the bottom of the door, it is rough but works alright for now. Would love to have a setup like yours.

Nice looking setup. If it works then use it should be the motto of all of us.

Nice space use conversion… but what happened to the tractor? Looks like you are spraying parts for that office furniture you were working on?

Here at home, we have a living room and dining room that goes unused… I’ve been threatening to convert them to a wood shop… duh, not much progress…

Nice idea, just be careful with the fans, they sort of should be explosion proof motors. Unless you only work with water base.
