By considering the capabilities of a spray paint booth, you can determine whether it will prove to be a useful piece of equipment for your own DIY painting tasks. If you can establish whether a spray paint booth is actually necessary, it will help you to decide whether you should make the investment of buying one.

Pottery

Whether you make your own pottery or simply want to change the color of an existing piece, an ideal way to paint the pieces is by using a spray paint booth. There are paint booths available that will enable you to apply paint as well as heat. This process will not only dry the paint quicker but can help create the desired finish. The process of using a spray booth will help to reduce the possibility of imperfections affecting the piece in view of needing to be cleaned before being placed into the booth. The booth is kept clean and is sealed to reduce access to any dust and debris.

Furniture

The look of wood or cast iron furniture can be altered to match the surrounding decor with a spray paint booth. If some resurfacing work is required to prepare for the application of the paint, do this prior to placing the item in the booth. Sand any relevant sections of the surfaces and thoroughly wipe away the resultant dust before applying any paint. It is possible to undertake the task with a booth that automatically dispenses paint or by manually using a spray gun inside it. The task is likely to be easier to complete using a paint spray gun if the furniture comprises intricate designs.    

Vehicles

A spray paint booth is ideal for use to add color to the bodywork of cars and other types of vehicles. The vehicle will need to be prepared by covering all the bumpers, rubber seals, glass and any other section that does not require a coat of paint. Make sure that the protective covering is properly secured and in the correct place so that there are no open seams. It is necessary to wear protective clothing and accessories while spraying a car in a booth. Not only will this prevent the risk of inhaling or becoming irritated by fine particles of paint in the atmosphere, but will also stop foreign bodies from outside making their way into the booth. After the paint has been applied in a satisfactory manner, heat can be applied while the vehicle remains in the booth. This will help to dry the paint quickly which results in a coating that is more resistant to defects and scratches.                 

Woodwork

If you undertake a large number of woodwork projects, you may find it beneficial to have a spray paint booth in order to paint the items that you construct. Using the piece of equipment for this purpose is possible whether it be for a small ornament or a large item of furniture. Unlike applying paint with a brush or roller, the spray booth method will ensure that paint is more evenly applied.
