Default easy setup paint screen

I was trying to cut down on overspray when I pull out the paint gun. I ran to harbor freight and got the tarp for less than $15, walmart shower curtain rings for about $1 and some 1/2" electrical conduit for about $12. I had the j hooks, but you can get them at your favorite big box home improvement store. It took me less than 1/2 hour to put in the j hooks, run the conduit and hang the tarp. I took it down after I was done and it took me all of 5 minutes to take down and 5 minutes to fold it up. Didn't have any overspray that I could see.

Default Paint booth

I have almost the same set up. Mine is shower curtains. Works great. I left the conduit frame up the entire build. It's very useful for all sorts of stuff. Good idea.

I spent $50 and went with an outdoor spray tent. Zero overspray in the garage. It's just for priming, and worked well the one time it's been used.
