I made the mounting frame for the screen today and it came out perfect if a tad over-engineered. I temporarily hung the screen frame it for a proof of concept before I put the screen material on it. I rigged it with a pulley system so I can install and remove the screen myself and also adjust the height should I ever choose to use the M22 center, however based on how it looked I doubt the screen height will be an issue for anyone.

Putting tape on the wall doesnít do justice to the impression a 134 1.78:1 screen makes even w/o the material on it yet. Iím so glad I didnít go one size smaller as this is a perfect fit.

The projector is in Phoenix scheduled for delivery tomorrow hope it arrives before I go to work as I requested they get a signature. Have to stop at Fryís and get another long HDMI and VGA cables on the way to work.

Back for another reality check.

Iím having second thoughts about painting the trim tan but now because of how dark and rich the burgundy looks Iím thinking that gold trim would look a lot nicer. This trim wonít just be around the baseboards and door frames but also inlaid on the doors.


Like this?



Great minds think alike \:D

Absolutely the truth. Once the screen is up, you realize just how immersive it is, and it becomes real.

Nice! And yes very much like that. Black was actually the first colour I considered for trim because it would also match the ceiling. I moved to tan thinking it would look good matching the set of blinds covering the arcadia door but once I got the burgundy up on the walls gold started sounding like a nicer match. Although black is still a distinct possibility it would certainly hide any mistakes I make cutting in better than gold, but with the curtains I donít need to have the trim dark unless I miss-measured and the curtains come up short enough that the baseboards show.

I think I might hold off an the trim until I settle on a colour for the carpet and I wonít know that until the curtains are up and I can see how dark the carpet needs to be so it wonít show.

Burgundy and gold would look nice IMO... Sort of a nice old school 20's/30's scheme.

Thanks for that comment it just gave me one of those duh-I-coulda-had-a-v8-moments. Iíd been trying to come up with some sort of theme for a long time but none of my none of my interests really meshed with black curtains hanging from the walls even if they were open exposing the walls. I had just given up on the idea and decided to take a minimalist approach but with gold trim Iím already getting away from the so I could see going with a 20s/30s theme of sorts and it should be pretty simple at that.
