2X4s and some Poly with a fan or fans with filtration will do the trick. Also make sure you have plenty of light.

...and breathing apparatus {and I don't mean just a mask}, some of the new paints can kill you without the right ventilation.

Like the first reply said, I too have used a 2x4 structure and secured poly drop cloths to the inside. I found that it works real well to pressurize the booth with an attic fan and let the exhaust blow through a filter screen made of rolled furnace filter material. I have a deflector that I mount inside the attic fan to direct air to the floor and keep the floor real wet. It works great. I was afraid of drawing the fumes into an exposed electric motor. Can you say boom? Good luck, Gordon
