I plan on painting an area on my wall a very light gray mixture, and using black matte paper tape as a border. Instead of 2" like I've used before, I've been considering using a 1" black border. I've seen large HDTV's and screens with minimal borders, and they had a very streamlined, sleek look about them. Does anyone know if the look translates well to DIY screens, or does it just come off looking skimpy?
For no reason at all, here is my previous screen with a 2" border. In that case I used white photography paper and taped (later glued) to the wall so I wouldn't have to paint anything. BIG mistake.The paper would drastically expand and contract at the slightest change in humidity, making huge billows in the screen. Caused a lot of hassle, espeically for anyone viewing the image slightly to the side.
