Of course you will need some filters for intake and exhaust and a big fan to move the can use the cheapy type filters for a one time kind of deal to make a simple crossflow booth..

Just like he said, maybe you don't need to even stud it. It may help. The final tip I can add in here is to wipe the plastic down with a polyester rag before you begin to shoot the paint. This creates a little static and the sheets become a dust magnet. One more tip. Blow off the ceiling area real well the day before. The nice part about the static "cling" is also that much of the overspray dust will get stuck to the plastic. Easy clean-up.
