    Here is my workshop. I airbrush in a separate bedroom.
    The paint stands are from HS.

    My Space. A lot to do that's a reason for my little outcome of airbrush work.
    I hope I can finish this year. [​IMG]

    Hey guys and gals, been a while since I posted because I haven't been painting at all for a long time. Had the GF move in my house a while back and I lost some space LOL, so I made this little paint booth so I could start painting again. I was painting out in my garage before, but it wasn't set up very well to begin with and after the GF moved in there wasn't any more room for everything.

    I designed the paint booth myself, based it off of what I had seen online but built it to custom fit in the space I have available. I have Solidworks on my work laptop so I did the initial design in the CAD software, created blueprints for myself and a bill of materials so I could go to the hardware store and buy exactly all the materials I needed. I haven't really built much stuff out of wood, so this was definitely a learning and developing woodworking skills project lol. I cut all the plywood and lumber with a circular saw. I was able to buy one for super cheap. I also bought a speed square to make straight cuts, and made a jig for making straight cuts across 4' of plywood, thanks youtube!

    It works pretty good, and a benefit of the design is that the ventilation system and filtration can be upgraded later pretty easily. Currently I am using two 20" box fans, each fan has 2 one inch 20x20 inch furnace filter in front of it. My original idea was to put some ducting to direct the ventilation out of a window, but when I built the booth it was about -20 degrees fahrenheit out so I wasn't opening any windows any time soon lol. I might add that later, we will see. I am not going to be basecoating anything here, I built it for light airbrush work, so for now this is plenty.

    I am pretty happy with the performance of the booth, and having a nice clean comfortable spot to paint at is so much nicer than trying to paint in my cold dusty garage.

    Nice job! I have been looking at homemade ventilation ideas. Yours is great. I am thinking of attempting one also.

    Thanks! It was honestly pretty easy to do and wasn't very expensive and now I got this nice spot to sit at and paint! I would highly recommend making one of your own!

    That is a very good looking booth. Get some cheap LED strips and line the inside front. It will just give you a much more even result.

    Great looking booth. And I like Andre’s idea of adding led strips.

    I want to do something but for the time being I had the lamp fixtures laying around so. Do you know of any good quality LED's that are in the 5000k color range? or what is the ideal light?


    Edit: Put together this little rolling cart when I got home from work today. First time putting all my paint in one spot, holy crap do I have a lot of paint! Put a little artwork on the side the last night and a picture I had lying around so it was so white. Now I got a couple paintings to work on, but I'm all set up!

    I’m getting very comfortable with my set-up now. Recently installed a magnetic dry erase board as my entire work surface. I love it. Easy to clean. It’s great.

    +1 on the whiteboard. so easy to clean up overspray from a painting. I use createx so for me I put a little of the 4012 reducer on a paper towel and it just wipes right off!
