Recently we were trying to spray paint, under a deadline to finish, but it was really windy out wrecking havoc with our efforts! We needed help. We searched Steph’s garage and came up with a child-size pop-up tent. Surely this would work!
We found out quickly that our homemade spray paint tent didn’t provide the wind protection we needed, plus it kept blowing over and there was no way to secure it into place. It’s a great play space for kids, not so much a paint space for DIYers!
Fast forward a few months, we were sent a REAL spray paint shelter by the folks at HomeRight. After our experience with the little play tent, we were eager to see how this thing measured up. HomeRight has two sizes, we were sent the smaller of the two which is perfect for small projects.
Paint Shelter Report Card
Do I need it?
For spraying small objects in less than ideal situations makes this a must-have tool for the DIYer.
Do I have something that can already do the job?
A variety of makeshift hacks can potentially be put together to something similar, although we tried without success to DIY this product.
If you do a lot of spray painting and want to keep your area (garage, house, car, etc.) clean and be able to spray in windy conditions, this spray shelter is well worth adding to your homeowner tools.
Please note: We are not sponsored by HomeRight. We were given this spray shelter to try out. All thoughts and options are our own and based on our experience.
FYI: We are not professionals, and we don’t claim to be. This is what we found worked for our project. Yours may need a little different approach. Safety first!
