DIY Projector Screen Wall

A front projector is useless without a screen on which to project video. However, you can make a do-it-yourself (DIY) projector screen wall to use with a front projector. While special skills or expertise with video are not needed to create a DIY projector screen, you will need special screen paint, such as Screen Goo or Paint On Screen, along with supplies and paint tools from a hardware store. The size of the wall will dictate just how large the screen can be.
