It's a Paint Booth...sorta...

Lookie! It's a paint booth. :) Only took us three weekends, but we got it done. Did you know they make ultra thick plastic? Well, if I thought about it I would have known...but until I asked the guy at the hardware store what would work for a paint booth, and he was all "plastic" and I was all..."I tried painters plastic and it was a disaster..." and he was all "HAHAHA YOU FOOL! WHAT WERE YOU THINKING!" (ok, not really...) He pointed me to the "6 mil" stuff, which works quite nicely. Eventually I'd like to add a 4th wall, and top and ventilation...but for now, this catches the overspray quite nicely, and I got this....

To protect my lungs while I work in here. Pretty, eh?

Now, if only I'd remembered tack cloth when I bought my plastic, I'd have several finished projects to show you...as it is, I have 3 sitting in the garage, sanded and waiting to be cleaned up properly before they can be painted. I don't have school tomorrow, though, so I'll get them done then.
