I saw that. I’ve used 2×4’s to make a really rough frame, and drape a few of our old King size sheets around it. I really didn’t see anything there that my contraption wouldn’t do. I don’t get any overspray. I’ve just used old cardboard on the floor for a long time. When I knock it down it looks just like I’ve never sprayed there.

Looks like it would work well for it’s intended purpose I guess. But as mentioned, you can make a temporary spray booth pretty easily and without a lot of expense. I have an old porch swing frame that I found years ago that I use for the purpose. Just add a couple of those free HF tarps and it’s set. I’ve also hung them from the ceiling in the garage when I had to due to the weather outside. Those little cheap 10×10 pop-up canopies work great as well – maybe around the same or a couple bucks more expensive than that rockler thing, but it can be used for a lot more than just a paint booth as well.

Cheers,
Brad

Based on Rich’s review, I bought one several months ago. I like it a lot. It serves my needs very well.

I usually hang some thin plastic drop cloth over the garage door runners and tape them together to make a “spray booth” and put a cloth drop cloth on the floor. When I’m done, the plastic gets tossed and the drop cloth gets folded up until the next time.

I have the small one. Much cheaper at Woodcraft for the smaller one. I had a gift card for Rockler and asked them to match, which they did. Haven’t used it yet, but I will soon.

Have your say...
