DIY Projector TV Screen


Okay, so that title isn't exactly true. It's not really a screen, it's a painted wall and I didn't DIY it, Brandon did.



It's true. That crafting apple really doesn't fall far from the tree. I'm so proud!

Brandon & Christina's new house has a huge family room with high ceilings, so they wanted a huge Projector TV down there. Those TV's have come such a long way since they first came out. You can't tell in that rough phone pic, but the picture is clear and perfect.




That's all it is, that thing hanging from the ceiling.

While we're here, see the jerseys hanging on the wall that I framed for Brandon?
(The post is Here, if you want to check it out.)

You may have already figured this out, but that room is now Brandon's Sports Cave.

Anyway, back to the TV.




After he got the part mounted to the ceiling and turned it on, he could tell exactly where the picture would show on the wall. He and Christina painted that section with flat white paint and then Brandon added the trim around it. 




I said it once, I'll say it again. I'm so stinkin' proud of that kid!

Have a fabulous Monday!

We also have a projector screen "TV" in our home and we LOVE it! To this day it's been one of the projects I'm most proud of. It really makes the perfect place to watch a movie as a family.
I love the frame he added--that really adds a special touch!

That projector screen looks really good, and I think the black trim adds a lot to the painted area. It really makes it defined as a screen area. I am surprised at how easy this must have been. It was probably harder to mount the projector than making the space for the screen on the wall.

I’m really amazed with your posting skills as well as with the layout on your blog site. Is this a paid style or did you modify it yourself? Either way keep up the pleasant quality writing, it is rare to see a great site such as this one these days.I recently came to know about http://machinesuae.com/, their Projector Screen are very effective.
