I will probably wind up treating 6' back since my screen is indeed close to the ceiling. The tape over the grid is a great idea. What about something like this:

Until Protostar has a "Best in Class" option, it'll do nicely.....ridiculously so compared to a white grid.

No need to move the posts guys, it's all good discusison. cool.gif

Very much looking forward to trying out these black 2x2 inlays for my ceiling with some tape for the grid to match. This will have to wait a few weeks though as I've got a few other projects going on at home.

What Kreg Jig kit did you use? After reading your thread, I am inspired to build my own AT screen

I use the Kreg Jr. setup like this:

Also - as an update I've gone fully black on the ceiling, grid, and most of the side walls. I've also upgraded my projector to a Sony HW-55ES. The result is outstanding!

That's awesome! I have been contemplating blacking out the front tiles since the will probably need replacing soon anyway, and the grid is already black. I really like the clean look of your setup!

Do you remember which Kreg screws you used as well?
