Homemade Spray Booth


When you spray paint out-doors you will notice a lot of debris, dust, and anything else that floats in the air, in your finish.  If you don't have a garage or a warehouse, then this tutorial may benefit you. I decided to create a spray booth that has the same concept as spray booths for cars. My goal is to minimize dust and debris while reducing the intake of paint in my lungs.


Materials needed

  1. PVC pipe - 1/4 inch (thin), comes in 10 ft. lengths (hardware store)
  2. 8 total - 90 degree corners 1/4 inch(hardware store)
  3. 8 total - "T" junctions 1/4 inch(hardware store)
  4. 3ft x 3ft square of carpet or cardboard
  5. 4 ft. of Sticky Back Velcro tape (craft/hobbie store)
  6. 3 clear shower curtain liners (home improvement store)
  7. 1 box of 100 zip ties (electrical/hardware store)
  8. 14"x8" plexi glass (hardware store)
  9. Small desk fans (hardware store)
  10. Folding stools (home improvement/hardware store)
  11. Rotating tray

Tools Needed

  1. Hack saw or special PVC pipe cutters (hardware store)
  2. Wire cutters (hardware store)
  3. Tape measure (hardware store)
  4. Vacuum for clean up
  5. Dishwashing gloves (hardware store)
  6. Scissors

Total Cost

The parts you'll need cost about $50, plus you'll need a few tools.  I spent a little more due to mistakes and planning ahead since I wasn't sure exactly how much material I needed.
