Today I'm telling you about the fabulous Homeright Spray Painting Shelter . I’m so excited about this new and unique product!
Many of us struggle with places to do our painting. I was doing my spraying in a carport, but it’s so dark in there, that I find I have a difficult time seeing if I’ve missed a spot.
Then I started spraying my projects on a drop cloth on the driveway. Now, I have a new way to get my projects done.
This is the wonderful new Homeright Spray Shelter. It is such a compact size to store away, but opens up to make a roomy spray booth.
I’ll be honest, the first time I put the paint shelter up, I struggled with the assembly. I’m not a camper, and I don’t have a very good understanding of how tents go up. Since that first time, I’ve put it up several more times, and it’s gotten so easy I can put it up in about five minutes. The directions are attached right to the bag so you will never lose them! Here are a few key points to remember:
- Laying it out on the ground or your driveway first is a must
- The front of the tent has pins that insert into the back poles.The front poles crisscross and end up using the pins on the back of the tent.
- I find that it’s easiest to insert the front poles and pins, then the back poles and pins.
- After you’ve done that, attach all of the clips to the poles.
- There is a ring in the back center that can be secured with an included stake, or weighted down with something heavy if you’re on a hard surface instead of the grass.
- When taking the Spray Shelter down, go in the reverse order.
- Lay your tent out neatly, folding it up that way, will allow you to put it up quickly the next time you use it.
Specs for the Spray Shelter
- Depth: 72" at bottom - 30" at top
- Width: 102" at bottom - 92" at top
- Height: 66.5"
When stored away:
- Depth: 29.1"
- Packaged width: 4.3"
- Packaged height: 4.3"
After setting up the paint shelter and some sawhorses, I readied my project. It's a free coffee table I got from my friend Cathy.
Of course I used my Finish Max with Heirloom Traditions Paint. (Moody)
I thought was going to be a gray, but then it looked blue…. then gray again. So, I guess you could say it’s an awesome blue-gray!
I started by painting the underneath side of the table.
Raising your project off the ground really helps your aching back, and allows you to get to hard-to-reach places.
The Finish Max and the Heirloom Traditions paint made this cheapo coffee table look good.
See how I did an easy image transfer on this cheap coffee table.

This would be a God send for me with my low retirement budget. I'd be in project heaven... xoxox
Live in a apartment this would good for me
A spray shelter, what a great idea! It sure would make my projects easier to do.
Winning this awesome package would make all the projects that I need to get done closer to *getting* done!
With three oak trees hanging over my driveway, using the shelter would make the projects I have to do sooo much easier and cleaner!
I have 27 interior doors to paint, need this!!
I have a small telephone table that belonged to my Grandmother I would like to either refinish or paint. I remember her using it in the early sixties
I love how easy you make it look. I imagine a sprayer wound save tons of time....
Like most people, I paint outside. We live near the ocean and always seem to have a breeze. The spray shelter would be awesome!
Would love to win this prize package, have so many projects in the works, and this package would make life a breeze.
HomeRight has some amazing products.
I have some candlesticks that are quite intricate.
I could use these! I am constantly painting items and furniture and I've taken over my husband's space in the garage. With these I could set up outside and the hubby could get back to his 'Honey Do' List!
I need this. I make such a mess when I paint.
Love this idea! Would love to have something like this and start painting!
Being a single mom of 4 boys the spray shelter would certainly come in handy. Having boys they are naturally curious about everything but I'm always conscious when I spray paint and I don't like them around the smell. This would certainly help by letting them know to stay away from the area when the tent is up
Would love to win this. Looks like a wonderful product that would get much use at my house.
Small items to paint would be crate boxes, picture frames, furniture pieces/parts, salvaged parts, planters and much more! 🙂
Oh boy! do we ever need this. Our only option right now is to paint in the sun and lately it has been sprinkling so we can't paint outside at all. This would be the most convenient thing! We have dressers that need paint!
The shelter would be fabulous for those breezy days. I'd want to win the package because I paint too much all of the time. It would be a great painting station! 🙂
It's so windy here! This would be a great help!!!!
So tired of having to make a "Homemade" paint booth with plastic!
I really can't wait to start painting!! I love the idea of the paint shelter.'
This spray tent would make my life so much easier! I have to paint outside on the grass now. I think more paint gets in the air than on my furniture!
Would love to get started on learning to paint furniture ..., this would be SO helpful
This would be such a better option to open painting in our garage. I love to find old objects and re-purpose them to use around my house and farm. Having a quick set-up way to do this would make completing these projects so much quicker and better.
I would love to win this to do all my projects in! My husband hates when I spray things in our garage 🙂
Love this product!
I have a side table I'm ready to paint! That paint shelter is a great idea!
I've recently retired and have TONS of projects I've been waiting to do! These painting items/tools will come in very handy. Thanks for the chance to win them!
With all the unpredictable weather (and now mutant mosquitoes!) we've been having, I have SERIOUSLY considered re-purposing one of my kids' tents just so I can catch up on my painting! Having a shelter would definitely save me the trouble... AND allow the kids to camp out in the back yard one more season! Great give-away!
I'd love to have the set so that I can start on all the "projects" I've been picking up on the curb over the last few months!
Thank you! Your work is so inspiring!
I have so many projects I can't finish because I have no where to paint ! I would love a shelter like this!
I would love to win this spray shelter so I would have a better place to spray paint!
Thanks for the chance!
I have a beautiful lane hope chest that I got back in high school ... a looonnnngggg time ago! I refinished it in a whitewash finish back in the 80's ... I want to try painting it in light gray! This would be perfect as I realllllyyyyy don't like brush strokes!
This would work absolutely perfect when I spray my projects. The 100+ heat in the summer and frigid cold in the winter can make it very difficult to do painting in the garage while doing it out in the open and being hit with random gusts of wind that carry dust and debris can be quite a challenge as well. What a fantastic idea and valuable investment!
Thanks for the opportunity.
I love all your work! I currently paint everything by hand! There is a wind tunnel between my house and next door on the garage side! This would make all things possible!!!
Love checking out your projects. They give me inspiration! 😉
I would paint some ornamental pieces I salvaged from an old headboard my sister threw out.
Oh the things I could pain with this sprayer might make it possible for me to get a car back in my garage and the paint marks on my lawn would be a thing of the past. Love, love the pop up shelter!
Brilliant idea. Would make spray painting so much easier!
I would love to use this system to paint some small tables and keep the paint from going where I don't want it to.
I would use this new system to paint a pine corner cabinet, and do it safely using the spray shelter in my driveway. Awesome idea! Thanks for this opportunity to win.
Right now I am using the sun, wind, rain, my brush and me 🙂
Would be so cool to have this shelter, for the rainy / sunny days. Looks quick and easy to set up 🙂
I am very excited to see who wins!!
chris from midwest cottage and finds
AND I would use this spray shelter for all my furniture painting!!!
chris from midwest cottage and finds
OK--you read my mind!!! I need a spray tent!!!! GREAT give away!!
chris from Midwest Cottage and Finds
This would be a great addition for my painting.
chris aka monkey
i haven't ever seen one before and lordy lordy i don't know how much paint i have wasted by the wind just blowing it away i would use this all the time xx
I would love to win this sprayer shelter. It looks so simple to set up. And also, keep the paint in one place!
WOW.....love the spray shelter. You could set the shelter up almost anywhere. Great for the keeping paint from spraying on everything else!
This shelter looks very handy and easy to store.
Since developing lymphadema after BC surgery, brushing my projects has become difficult. This could be the answer to my problem.
This looks awesome!!! I have a sun shelter for the beach that I was seriously considering appropriating just for this purpose, but with this I wouldn't have to, a win/win since it is ridiculously hot in Florida in the summer.
well, aren't you the great repurposer? going to use your sun shelter for painting. 🙂
This is totally awesome! I have been dying to refinish some furniture pieces, but am a bit of a neatnik and just haven't had the guts to try to in our garage for fear of getting overspray on our things. Not to mention the preparation and cleanup. I would be tickled to win this and have a chance to use it on my first project.
I would use this sprayer to repaint my bedroom furniture. . just for starters. My grown daughters also have some projects that need to be painted. This would be GREAT!!!
This seems to be such a GREAT spray outfit. I would love to win one of these!!!!
Shannon @ Fox Hollow Cottage
LOVE the idea of a pop up tent!! We get so much wind here on the coast, I often can not use my sprayer when I want too. And I love my HR sprayer!!
I suspect that the shelter would be appropriated by my husband for his projects, or at least attempted. I would love to be able to protect my projects from the pollen and debris from the trees as much as the surroundings from overspray.
My neighbors are cleaning out and have put out a couple of chairs that I would like to take a shot at.
I have plenty of projects on my to do list. Some smaller upcoming projects are picture frames and a DVD shelf unit. This would be fabulous!
I'm so excited about this giveaway! I could really use these products for all the projects I need to complete. Hope I'm the lucky winner! Love your blogspot...lots of great ideas!
Hmmm... where should I start? Okay, first, I Live to paint! I paint anything that doesn't move, Okay, I accidentally painted my Hubby once, But, in my defense he should have known by now that I'm dangerous with a spray can! hahaha. Having a Shelter like this would be Heaven! No more rainbow colored grass ( Which, by the way looks very festive hours before throwing a backyard bash!) it would also mean no more furniture "body outlines" in the driveway (Oh, you painted your table!) and, the best one for last. The fateful day I neglected to close the garage door before painting. Honestly, I didn't think it was that windy! Have you ever seen a black Harley Davidson motorcycle with lime green overspray? Yeah, I Really Need a Spray Paint Shelter, not only for my projects, but for my Husbands sanity.
I have a somewhat complicated life and building/painting is my PEACE, my stress reliever. I still have to paint by brush in the house because I have no place to use the Homeright finishmax sprayer I bought, I would love to have that spray shelter as I have many projects backed up waiting to be made beautiful so they can enter the world in glory.
I could use all of these! Have lots of little projects that need to be done, yet hubby says 'NO!' To painting in his garage!
What a great idea! I would love to win too. I'm exploring with updating my furniture with paint and have asthma so I need to be outside to do it. This would work perfect.
I have had my eye on this sprayer for some time. I'm exited to hear that there is a solution to the problem of finding a good place to use it. I'd love to be able to update my kitchen cabinets and a few furniture pieces without spending too much money.
I sooooooo need this giveaway because we only have a one car garage (which the car does NOT go in because of all the other stuff in there)! So I can't paint in there and our development's houses are all pretty close together so I need a way to keep the spray from bothering the neighbors!!!!
I love the shelter. I know my husband would use it all the time. He paints outside a lot and this would work perfectly. Love this idea
I would Love to have this, as it would make my life so much easier.
I have several to do items that I want to spray, and I do not have any way of working on them due to
needing to have them in an enclosed space, like this tent!
Thank-You so much for the chance.
Also, I would use a garden Hose for easy clean up.
I am so excited about this. We just bought a 1970's home that needs so much updating. I am going to be updating and painting cabinetry, doors, walls, trim, and building some cabinets too. A sprayer and shelter would be perfect for my many projects, and making clean-up better would be the icing on the cake.
I would use this awesome spray shelter to paint my furniture! Such a great invention! Thanks Gail!
Let's see I would use either a kitchen sink, because I don't have a utility sink, or a garden hose. I think like you said the garden hose has more power and would work better! 🙂
i would use this to spray paint items in my garage but wouldnt use this if spray painting my walls
i would clean this in my utility sink in the utility room
I have a couple of rockers i would love to spray paint
I NEED this because I love all things junk! My slogan... Everything old gets a new beginning... This would help me in my journey to accomplish that!!
It's going on my wish list! But I am as equally impressed with your genius sawhorse set up!! Love it all!
Um, how would I NOT use this Homeright Spray Shelter?! Lamps, chairs, tables... Love it.
It would be great to win this. My son and his wife are expecting their first baby ( my first grandchild!!!!) and there are so many projects I could use this for. Painting her bed, painting her dresser, bedroom, toys, baby shower decorations,.... So many thing!
Would love to have this!
Donna in SC
FINALLY ! A portable paint booth that is manageable for everyone. Love the idea it is so compact to store also! I NEED this! Thanks for the chance to win one!
what a great idea! Not only will it help with containing overspray, but with assist with protecting painted piece from falling leaves, etc...
I want to try these tools sooo badly!
We have a pole barn but this spray shelter would be great to spray in instead so that I would be subjected to less fumes!
I have been collecting an assortment of free or super cheap furniture that needs to be fixed up and this sprayer and tent would be perfect for the job. I have a set of old farmhouse chairs, two dressers, a shelf, and cabinet that need painting and if I could spray them instead of painting by hand that would be amazing!
I would love to have something like this!
I can see a lot of frames & desks and lamps getting painted by this !!! TY
I would use the garden hose for easy clean up...
I would like to be considered for the spray tent bc I live in one of THE windiest areas of the country - Ellensburg, WA. I need to spray about 20 tables, chairs, etc. and this would be an so helpful. When I have sprayed in the past, there was yellow paint all over everything except the chair. Ugh. Thanks for the contest.
How PERFECT is this?!? Using a shelter would certainly save a lot of time spent on touch-ups and clean-ups because it would help keep the paint where it's supposed to be... on my projects!
This looks like a great product!!I
Robin @ Redo It Yourself Inspirations
I would use this for anything that would fit in it to paint away! Great for a breeze break outdoors. Really awesome for in the workshop to protect surroundings.
I would so Love to win this shelter. I would use it for the garage gull of furniture that's waiting to be painted.
I would use this on a lot of things, chairs, end tables, picture frames.
I would use the garden hose to clean it.
I live in the world's largest temperate rainforest in Juneau Alaska...it can go from calm to breezy and sunny to drizzle in a matter of minutes...i would use this every time is do a project! My husband says I'll paint anything that sits still...so he keeps moving!
I would clean the spray containers in my utility sink after the garden hose.
I am currently painting my outdoor furniture (all of it quite elderly) and since I live on top of a hill in a river canyon painting is difficult to say the least. I either get up early when it is still calm but might be too humid or late in the evening when the wind dies down. Neither of those options work very well and this tent is a great idea.
SUPER COOL IDEA! Home right has thought of everything-- To bad my camper wouldn't fit in there, we could paint that! We'll have to rig something up.
If I had one-- I could paint my lawn, deck and pool furniture! Right now grass blows onto anything I paint outside!
Pretty blue grey on the table. Are you going to stencil something sweet on there?
doreen @ Altered Artworks
How great is this?! i have several projects waiting for a shelter like this. It's getting hot here, so this would be ideal to use in the shade early in the morning, before the sun heats up the backyard.
This would help me tremendously with painting furniture! Would LOVE to win!
I would love to have all three of these items. I love to spray paint but cans of paint get expensive, especially for big pieces. The tent would be so helpful. Like you said the garage is dark and the yard is just messy. I have 5-10 things waiting to be painted right now. There is always something!
This nifty tool would make my husband happy! I would quit painting in the garage and 'coloring' his tools...lol. I have a garage wall of many colors.
Id use the tent when painting furniture
I have a ton of projects I have been picking up. I should clear my projects out by spraying them. Mirrors, tables, and a bookshelf.
I would love to have this spray tent 🙂 I am re-doing my upstairs bedroom for my two beautiful grand Daughters and I am turning it into a room built for little princesses ! I am painting all the furniture antique white and I could really really use these items!
I would use the Homeright Spray Shelter when I am spray panting furniture outside. It would really help with the over-spray.
I would clean my Finish Max with my garden hose.
I would love to use this to spray my dining room chairs!
I love to spray paint but cans of paint get expensive. Also, when I paint I have to either do it in the garage or in the back yard on a drop cloth. I have probably 5-10 pieces waiting to be painted. A drop leaf table and wooden boxes and a kitchen cart.
Oh, do I have a list of things that need painting. A friend gave me two wooden benches that need paint desperately. I found 2 chairs by the street last weekend and asked the owner if I could have them. Sure, he said. They are chairs to a bar height table and the nuts for the bolts that hold everything together came off. I want to paint them and put them in the garden. I seem to find a new thing a ma bob every other day that a little love and paint and it would look great. I have coveted a finish max for quite some time. Everytime I get close to having the money saved up, life intervenes and the money goes elsewhere.
This is really a cool. Could definitely use this.
What a fabulous idea, a shelter to protect your project and spray painting. I usually do mine in the back yard, but would love to have something to protect from over spray. Thanks for a chance to win this.
I sure could use this now. Spraying my outside tables and stands. Would find a ton of sues for it. Hubby is always painting something.
I have shelves that I would use in this to spray, I also have a crib I just bought at a yard sale for my new grandbaby that I would use this to spray and as soon as we find out the sex make it the color the mommy and my son want it.
I absolutely love DIY and my favorite part is painting things and making them look entirely different. This is something I could use for all my upcycling, repurposing, and just the fun things I like to do with things I find at yard sales, flea markets, etc.
I would use this for painting projects for upcoming craft shows! The hubby gets a little mad when I paint outside and live paint rings on the grass. Oops! This would be handy.
This would be perfect. I just participated in my first craft show and I know have a ton of color circles in my grass from painting outside. I also had to repaint a number of things because of unexpected rain showers. I absolutely love this!!
I used a sprayer to stain two outdoor tables in my driveway. I used a drop cloth but the overspray covered part of the driveway. It rained later and it made the driveway slippery. My dogs kept running across the driveway and slipping. I need the spray shelter so I don't cause harm to my dogs, lol.
I have a small chair I found by the side of the road (in 3 pieces). I took a shop class at the Vo Tech and repaired it as a class project. I would love to paint it now.
Looks like a great product!
Love your projects. I'd like to be your apprentice. So much you could teach. How/where did you learn to do all the things that you do?
I'm self-taught. When I have a particular problem or question, I'll search for a youtube video. Whenever I'm helping someone else do some DIY I watch them like a hawk to pick up new tips and tricks.
I guess I've mostly just learned by doing, and trying new things.
OMG!!! I JUST a bought a used Homeright sprayer, I have been waiting forever To be able to afford one! I have projects up the wazoo that I have been collecting and I can't wait to get started! I would LOVE to have one of these tents to protect the house, cars, and kids outdoor toys from stray paint drops! Yay for making creativity easier! Way to go Homeright!
The Spray Shelter is a great idea. Keep that pesky overspray off surrounding items.
That tent looks perfect for spray painting. I have had to spray paint on the ground or in a small tool shed, so the tent looks like it would make painting so much more convenient and comfortable. Thanks for the chance to win these cool prizes.
This would be amazing. We just painted a corn hole set in our driveway and the cottonwood tree was in full bloom. Needless to say, we were picking cotton off of the paint. This would have solved all problems!
This looks like a great accessory. What about the height of the shelter? Do you have to bend while using it?
These are the specs I should have added to the blog post. 🙂
Depth: 72" at bottom - 30" at top
Width: 102" at bottom - 92" at top
I would use this tent in my driveway to paint some dressers. Any tips on spraying the chalk paint? How much du you have to thin the paint?
I need this shelter because I do my spray painting on the driveway and if there is even the slightest breeze, my paint floats over and coats the Jasmine (or worse, the neighbor's vegetable garden!).
Wow!! what a great giveaway. I would be able to put all of the products to good use.
A year ago we sold all we have to live in a bus full-time. For a family of 9 that was ALL our furniture. Because of some major health issues and a few other unforeseen circumstances, we have had to start over in a home. With little money, I am trying to DIY everything for our home. This shelter and the Homerite sprayer would be wonderful to helping me to get these projects done. Since November with much time off for the Michigan winter, I have been able to build beds for everyone, get some beat up entertainment centers off Craigslist and from Salvation Army to repurpose into dressers, and some 1970s desks that need painting for my teens rooms for school. These would be a tremendous help!!
i have limited to no space to spray! I have the sprayer, now I need the shelter!
Hello! I am in my first house and have LOTS of projects for painting/repurposing. I do not have a garage, carport, or shed I can paint in. I haven't started yet because I think my only recourse is the patio with a tarp under my projects. The issue with that is that weather is unpredictable and because my house is in the country there are a TON of insects that get in the paint. HELP! lol
i would use it for painting a bistro chair my dad gave me. i would use the paint shelter because it would keep things off the items while i painted, help on days when it is windy/breezy, and because if i try to paint in the garage, the paint smell sometimes tries to get into the house. the shelter seems to be the perfect size. you could use a utility sink or a garden hose for Rapid Clean for Finish Max.
Those would come in very handy!
I would love to have all of theses tools. I am just getting started with painting furniture and find that my space is limited. This would open a whole new world for me.
I do not have a 'good' place to paint! No garage, and our carport is dirt-floored, with a dirt driveway, so I worry about dust blowing. This would be perfect! I could put a tarp down for the 'floor' and then pop up the shelter!
I need this sprayshelter! I'm the handy woman in this house and do most of the reno's myself, plus I'm an artist and like to
Build my own picture frames and glaze some of my paintings. Unfortunately we live in a very small house and have no garage either.
In this sprayshelter I could paint and stain my wood projects and could keep my kitchen table and deck as they were intended. =D
Love the spray tent. Would use it daily!
Because I am in a suburban neighborhood, I am very limited on my outdoor space. This would allow me the ability to paint in a confined area and not worry about overspray.
Would love to have this shelter to paint with on my projects! So far I have had to hand paint all of them and would love to try spraying them instead.
This would keep the sun and wind off of my projects allowing them to dry slower and keep debris off and protect projects from unexpected light showers. Please pick me
I would use for EVERYTHING!. I spray paint ALOT!. I just painted an old vanity. Did it by hand. would love to have had the shelter and sprayer for my next project which is a bed. I have to paint in my garage which is just horrific. You can still smell the paint in the house.
I would give my right arm, my painting one!, to have a spray shelter and a Finish Max. why? I live in a condo!
I love this! My daughter and I have several projects to do this summer involving painting. This would be faster, and neater and that would make my son-in-law very happy.
this would be great for me!! I spray piece all the time including frames, branches, vases, tables, chairs etc! I would love this!
I need the shelter because right now I am using my basement and I would love to spray outside without the stay ending up on all my flowers.
I have several small projects to paint and it always seems like the wind is blowing or a small rain storm moves in. This would be awesome...
The spray shelter would provide a wonderful place to paint while keeping leaf and other debris off of my projects. I live in a woodlands and it's difficult to keep stuff off fresh paint.
Cher @ Designs by Studio C
That is a really nifty idea, Gail! I would love to have one because I live in the country, work outside, and the birds are always critiquing my work. Darn birds!
Looks wonderful, & my end tables really need an update....this would be perfect.
I have so many small tables I need to redo and it would be great to be able to do them without worrying about paint spray blowing toward the house or the cars
I'm so excited to try this shelter! I live on an Army post in housing so I have to be really careful about where I paint. In Southern Alabama it is brutal to paint in the garage so this would be perfect
I SOOO need these!! I'm always painting in the garage( with a roller no less) and this would be SOOO much better..... Thanks for the chance to win!!
This shelter is the perfect idea. I rent and have to be extremely careful where paint ends up! Even outside, I have to ensure paint doesn't blow in the wind towards anything!!
I just painted that exact same coffee table! Of course I did it with a paint brush. But I would love to be able to paint the shutters my husband is building with the sprayer!
Gail, I thank you for the hints and tips on the Spray Paint Shelter by Homeright. I don't camp so I would have the same questions. 🙂 Thanks also for such a magnificent giveaway opportunity. Lots to paint around here. 🙂 I'd love to give an outdoor standing clock a patina makeover. Lots of nooks and crannies which would be easy work for the Finish Max. Happy creating!
I would use this often. We have a huge garage would hold 2 semi's. BUT, it is so full that I don't have much room to paint. This would certainly do the trick. Thanks for the chance.
