dishwasher spray paint booth Spray Paint Booth out of an Old Dishwasher

If you’re doing some serious spray painting, it’s good to do it inside some sort of booth to contain the overspray. Spray painter and Make: Projects user Randy Hawkins had been using a box with a cookie sheet over a trash can to paint, but “it did not do well containing overspray,” he notes.

So when he bought a new dishwasher, he converted the old one into a nifty spray paint booth complete with lighting and a turntable. He didn’t install a ventilation system, since he exclusively uses nontoxic paint, but you could easily put one in if you’re using the toxic kind.
