projection screenHome remodeling can be very expensive, not to mention a hair-pulling project. If you have recently done some remodeling and followed Diane's advice about planning a home theater but have nearly run out of money, don't despair; all is not lost. All you need is $100.

Seriously, if you have gone broke buying the projector for your home theater and don't have a $1000 to spend on a projection screen, you can make a 100" projection screen for under $100. The projector screen is relatively easy to assemble and install, and should give you great results. The article gives full step by step instructions, complete with a list of tools and materials that you will need for your project.

To make the projection screen, you'll need to visit a camera supply store, your local lumber and hardware store, and a fabric store. You will be constructing a wood frame, wrapping it in velveteen fabric, and then attaching white seamless paper to the back of the frame. Much better than a plain white wall, don't you think?
