So. At the start of Reapercon live 2020, my hobby room was a semi organized space, that wasn't really planned out. I also had not taught online so I had to create an area to do that. This meant shuffling things around to clear up space for a PC, cameras, class supplies etc. Post Reapercon I was left with a huge mess, as more shuffling occurred to not only teach, but to take a few courses. Here are a few shots of my space on the last day of Reapercon...
So... one of my sons had moved out in mid 2019... he had left his room like this. I called it his long term storage
Thus began a journey to make a space that would be better suited for painting, sculpting, teaching and storing the hoard that is my backlog. First few days were just getting his stuff out and repainting the room.
Then, my wife helped me with refinishing the floor
Then Saturday, I started moving every thing up to the new space...
Lots of stuff

One benefit of our unplanned and sudden move is that we will finally have a hobby room.
The first few displays were moved over first:
Then came a lot more of the mess:
Shelves have been set up, and a folding table arrived from Amazon:
An older end table has been drafted as a paint and build station:
Once it's finished up, I'll have to take shots of the whole set-up, but there's still a bit left to go.
I stumbled on this while looking for something to prime my new foam terrain set.
An internet search later and I found some locally, purchased and experimented.
It says it creates a thin durable primed surface that seals the foam and makes it safe to spray with other aerosol paints.
Well, it is definitely thin and is not going to hide any detail, I will apply two coats just to be safe.
It dries pretty quick, this is two coats with one hour between coats then one hour to dry.
Here is the true test, black aerosol spray paint....
...and it worked.
There is no bubbling, melting, deformation or even softening of the foam.
For all of us foam using terrain-oholics out there we finally have a way to spray primer our terrain.
Ok so it's really my fiancee's hobby room but she doesn't have an account on here yet and I built it so...
New vinyl tile floor and a fresh coat of paint. Walls are just primer white so she can do whatever she wants.
Kitchen was originally the back of the house and then they added on this room. The had just covered up the brick so the wall in between was about 12 inches thick. She wanted an accent wall so I knocked off the sheetrock. There was a hole where the window was but it's sheetrock on the kitchen side so it became shelving.
Let there be light! Flood lights are awesome. Go for LED bulbs though. Halogens make it hot quick.
She let me put my paint bench back in so we can be together when doing "clean" hobbies (I have a metal and woodworking shop out in the garage)
Furniture!!! The table is a wallpaper hanger's table so it is standing work height for her. (5'4")
Home made PVC pipe storage racks. See how I did it here : http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/72155-pvc-storage-for-craft-paints/
She likes to sort by color.
The cleanest my bench has ever been (and probably will be)
Hey there everyone!
I am looking for a possible alternative spray paint for priming my miniatures that is comparable to the Dragon Red spray primer from the Army Painters line of sprays. If anyone has a favorite, tried and true, or just effective red primer of similar color that they could relay to me; I would appreciate it.
Thanks in advance.
