Ask the creator about this project

  • Constructing a paint spray area such as this is a great thing to keep everything around your project paint dust free. When were doing paint projects such as this or any construction we use ZIP wall system. Bit expensive when you first get the basic system which includes six poles and accessories, But with this system you can put up a booth anywhere fast. With special accessories you do not have to tape the ceilings or floors. They sell special zipper systems that can be used with plastic. It has a special tape that sticks really well to the plastic. We use them all the time when doing mold cleanups and some demo projects that may contain lead paint. I would add a few safety tips however. Regardless if you paint latex or oil based paints, the dust can be explosive. Never use the light style you show in your blog as they can build up static electrical charge and cause an explosion. They do make sealed florescent fixtures that have covers over them to prevent the paint dust and fumes from getting into contact with the bulbs. You would be amazed on just how dusty the room becomes when your spray painting and how quick it happens. Never use standard light fixtures as well. And if you decide to use any kind of ventilation system, you must not use one in which the motor comes into contact with the air that its moving. Unless its an explosive proof motor. Window fans are very unsafe. Even if you use filters as some chemicals that can cause an explosion will pass right through the filter.

    Sometimes it is not possible to spray paint outside, so this is a really handy idea!!

      @Amy Ellis @ StowandTellU Don't tell anyone...but I have finally started painting outside. I think the weather might be here to stay for a while.

  • Amy I totally agree. Its just important to understand the risks and to assure your project does not cause other larger issues such as a fire. Many years ago my father was in the furniture construction business. He made wood frames out of 1x2 boards and fastened plastic to them. Then using spring clamps he would assemble them when he painted in our garage to keep the dust and bugs that always seem to show up anytime something is painted.

    @Woodbridge Environmental - On my blog post I do mention that we placed it where there is a side door (for ventilation) and that we always wear protective gear/masks so we don't breath the paint dust and fumes. You are correct that it is important.
