Built a home theater some time ago and the projector screen kind of stuck out like a sore thumb when not in use.

We have a fairly modern home and so, a contemporary look was fitting.

Not to mention, I am no artist, so sticking with a modern look insured that no one could tell if I screwed up or not.

I made the frame from MDF to insure crisp lines at the canvas edges. It was all glued together in four separate panels. I then stretched and stapled the canvas to the frames. They then had to be painted with a jute compound before I could paint the panels. I just used some oil acrylics and some texture to give the painting depth.

I used piano hinges since mdf does not take screws well. I wanted to make sure there was enough of them to offset any stripping or pull out.

The screen is made by Carada and is a 1.5 screen measuring 100” diagonal. Needless to say, we host many a football game night.

This “His and Her” Home Theater was featured in Home Theater magazine and Video Interiors in March 2007.

P.S. My wife’s jewelry box on the AV Credenza is made of Bubinga and Birdseye Maple.

great idea. Like the look much better than a plain white screen.
