Fantastic !

What a great idea,

Get all those Squeeze bottles up off the workbench so you can see,

and select them !

Look forward to the Tutorial !

 

(By the way, what types of paints are you using with the red striped label) ?

Second Row Vallejo model air, Vallejo game color opaques then assorted glazes, thinners and varnishes.

Wow that is great! Are the shelves adjustable because of the pegboard? Now I think I want to redo mine like yours.

 

Yes it is as I just used screws with washers and nuts in the back so you could unscrew it and move them up or down using the pegholes.

 

 

A couple of questions on this: What are the dimensions? Height/Width/Depth? Is that a curtain behind the rack with those penguins on it?

 

It is 4 feet wide by 2 feet tall and 2 inches deep.   Nope that is a flannel sheet that I had to hang in front of my window to stop the chill from the repeated polar vortexes we keep getting here in the midwest.  Brrrr!

What... ARE the shelves?

 

They are acrylic corner protectors.....you find them in the wallpaper section of the hardware store.  I bought mine at Menard's but most hardware stores should have them and yes Seer of the Pit is correct they are basically acrylic L angle's that are one inch on each side.

 

I realize that local costs for materials will vary, but could you include a rough estimate of costs?

 

The total for all materials (wood, pegboard, five shelves, screws, nuts and washers) was 38 dollars.
