Instructions

Go full-on DIYer and learn how to make a spray booth to keep yourself – and home or garage – neat and clean for your myriad spray painting projects.

Spraying inside is great, but when the weather is nice and the air is dry, there is nothing like using your FLEXiO® 890 Paint Sprayer outside under clear skies. With a light filtering canopy overhead, a drop cloth and canvas cloth sides, this easy to assemble paint booth will aid you in painting all kinds of furnishings and accessories and have you spraying almost everything with wild abandon. 

Items slip into the booth, get sprayed, and come out with multiple looks and uses.

Step 1

Pop up the tent, attach the canvas cloth curtains with clamps, and smooth out the plastic drop cloth on the ground. Use beach stones to anchor the edges from any swift breezes.

Step 2

The booth assembles quickly so the actual spraying of each item takes minutes and the plastic drop cloth means you can spray your pieces easily outside on your driveway, patio or lawn. 

Step 3

Using the FLEXiO® 890 to spray wicker is a great idea. The paint instantly finds its way into all the cracks and crevices. Painting it outside in a spray booth provides the light, space, and freedom to cover every inch of the entire piece.

Step 4

Use the metal structure of the canopy to hang items like lanterns, chandeliers or hanging plant pots to spray easily and quickly. Plant pots or recycled tin cans can aid in getting chairs and table legs off the ground for full spray paint coverage.
