    So, with the scope of the projector wiring project looking doable, I'm thinking it's time to start finalizing the planning on a DIY screen. Right now, I'm leaning towards something simple: 48x96" 1/2" MDF cut to a 92" diagonal with a 1.5" border Kilz2 primer on all surfaces Black Widow Paint...

    I have a 109" digital grey Screen Goo screen. My friend gave me a free liter of it, with base coat and it makes the Epson 6100 look great, and I haven't even calibrated it yet. Before the velvet curtains go up on the sides, top and bottom, I'd like to frame in the screen using 1x3's wrapped in...

    I've got a pretty good idea on how to set up the frame, but I'm a little stumped about how to put on the Black Velvet around the border. Do you guys wrap the border before you attach the screen to it or afterword?

    I am trying to find a cheaper alternative to velvet for my walls. Would either of these do? 1. Spandex black velvet 2. crushed blak velvet I know velveteen is good, but I can actually get these particular velvets for less.
