I do something along those lines. When I get a project to the finishing stage, I use a blower to clean the shop up really well, then I drape and hang plastic sheeting around the shop, creating a separate area for finishing. I do it more to protect the tools from overspray though than I do to keep an area clean, but it does work for both.

I read somewhere that using old bed sheets is better than using plastic because any finish that gets on them will just flake off when it dries and then the sheets can be washed for reuse. They can also be had really cheap, and will last a lot longer than cheap plastic, which has a tendency to rip easily. I haven’t tried it since I have lots of old plastic sheeting.
