Default Paint Station

While I was making a wine glass rack this morning for my kitchen, I noticed I had some left over materials. I have been meaning to create a paint station since I moved into my new place. So after some sawing, hammering, and sanding, I came up with this! Fits my paints up top, tools to the back, and paint brushes in a removable holder to the side.

Onto some Ork painting for me...

Happy gaming,


Dark Strategies

The design is pretty straight forward, the only thing I would add is a hole for a water cup. What would you charge to make one of them and ship it unassembled?

Nice one.


Things I'd like to do better (in no special order):
- Glowing eyes... how cool isn't that?
- Urban basing... There are so many ways to do this cool.
- Freehand texting... It can always get smaller...

I've been needing to make a paint station, I was planning on a more elaborate one though :/

This is pretty much all you really need though. Space for paints, brushes, misc. tools, yadda yadda. Good work

Looks like there are many of us thinking on building 'the perfect' painting station.
Why don't we all take pictures of our stations (when build) and/or compare the 'perfect one'...

We lay new floor last week, and there are tons of tiles left that I believe should be a perfect base... (now if I only could find the time to build this one as I also are in progress to build a japanese coal grill.... )

Paint, build or have a life.... so much to choose from....

The one I made pictured above is about 2' long by 1' wide. Made it out of a thin composite board that you can get at a Home Depot for pretty cheap. Happy building. Two days later my station is full of Orks and well used!

I can make one for you for $40 plus shipping. 2' length x 1' wide.

Guys.
I was on my way of building a station of my own, but found this in the barn close to where I spend a few weeks this summer.

It's very alike yours but ready for me to use right away.



How does your stations look like?
