I’ve seen a hundred videos on YouTube on paint booths. Some of them are made of a wood frame, some pvc, some even use the entire room as a paint booth. Very few DIY paint booths are collapsible and reusable. So that was my goal with this paint booth were that it would be a decent size for smaller projects, cheap to build, reusable and collapsible. Well I achieved just that. I hope you find this solution a perfect fit for you.
To get started you’re going to need a few things. You will need about 17 – 10 foot pieces of pvc pipe. I used schedule 10 to save a few bucks but you can also use schedule 40 just the same. I also used 2 rolls of 10’ by 25’ plastic sheeting, you can probably find a two pack for less than individual pricing. I used 3.5 mil but if you want yours to be more durable you can absolutely use 6 mil, again, I just wanted to save a few bucks. You will also need 37 ¾” T fittings and 24 90 degree elbows. Look for the bulk packages to save here. Alternatively, you can use ¾” 3-way fittings in the corners. The home depot I went to didn’t have them, so I went about it differently. You will need some pvc primer and glue and Velcro sticky backed coins, I found a pack of 75 at Michael’s which I got for $5.50 with a 50% coupon. Although not required, just highly suggested, you can integrate a shop light and two cheap air filters. If you haven’t seen the video on how to make the box fan air filters check it out here.
