If you’re anything like I was, you’ll have a tonne of Citadel paints dotted around your hobby station, some kept close to hand that you’ve recently used, others in your drawer, some more in one of those plastic tubs etc – It’s a right pain in the butt, and bad for the soul to have this disorganised mess, and you can never find the paint you need, or see them all in one go.
Well, I decided that I’d buy one of those MDF paint racks that you’ve seen around the internet, with a view to getting a handle on the situation. I didn’t do any prior research (which is bad) and just went straight ahead with an eBay purchase of the first fair priced unit I could find.
It arrived a few days later, in flat pack self-assembly form, with included assembly instructions. This is the type of MDF structure that you need to use glue for, and can’t get away with just slotting pieces together.
It took me about an hour with my PVA glue, an old paintbrush and some rubber bands (included!) to put it together, it wasn’t hard, in fact the most challenging part was right at the start where I had to identify one specific piece, which looked just like 3 other pieces bar one small detail… Anyway, I figured it out, but it would have been nice to have the instructions draw my attention to that detail to make the job easier but it’s of little consequence as I managed OK.
Once complete, I let the station dry overnight and the following day set it up by my work area. Occasionally I’ve moved it around, and it’s quite heavy now that its full of paints and other hobby knickknacks in its drawers, but I’ve been really pleased with how well it holds together and really gives a feeling of quality and structural integrity!
Overall, I would wholeheartedly recommend this product for people who want a tidier hobby space, and easier access to all their paints. The drawers under the paint rack are an excellent size too, with four smaller and two larger drawers included which hold extra hobby supplies and tools.
