I have used HVLP for a number of years. My spray booth in my garage consists of a third in depth of an old fridge box, ( namely an Amana french door fridge box) , which is fairly wide, a box fan and a filter held with bungi cords turned on high. Overspray is down to a minimum (if any) and the garage stays clean.
I have sprayed articles from stair treads to finished furniture pieces with this method, yes there have been the odd mistake here and there but I have been to some of the furniture factories out east and as long as the air moves away from the project, you can end up with a great finish. Until recently, most furniture and cabinet factories used very little else. Air scrubbing is not necessary in a small shop. As explained by CessnaPilotBarry your problems should be minimal.
