Beautify Your Space- Projector Screen

My husband is a complete techie nerd, I won't deny it...it is one of the things I love most about him. Because of this characteristic though, we have never owned a TV. We instead have a computer hooked into a projector on which we movies and TV online. Recently a new projection screen made its way into our new home- an ugly addition. So, I just had to beautify it.


Here is what we did:

We cut the screen off of the ugly rolly thing and pinned it to the wall using sewing pins. By stretching it tightly, we removed as many wrinkles as possible.


Lowes was having a GREAT sale on this crown molding so we purchased two pieces, took it home and cut it into a frame. We used a simple hand saw and a carpenter's corner- nothing fancy. Just make sure that your corners are cut at the same angle so they line up nicely on your wall. Then, we nailed the four different pieces around the screen, framing it.

Wha la! Our version of an inexpensive in-home theatre.

  1. Looks great! My husband would love to have a projection screen and a full-blown home theater, but it's not going to happen anytime soon :)
