Awesome! - just the info and pictures I needed to move forward. Any tips on staple patterns for the sides as you work down?

Thanks!

start at the bottom in the middle and work out until you have about 2/3 stapled.
anchor a 6 inch section on both vertical sides in the middle
Then do 2/3 of the sides
finish one corner at a time.

Did you paint the Top Molding that the light reflects off of or did you leave it white?

Airless with a long blue hose, it was his and I don't remember the brand, but word to the wise don't paint anything Rosco Flat black with that or a similar sprayer. Between trips BZbase sprayed the ceiling. proscenium and screen frame black. Three weeks after returning I was still fighting the pervasive black dust that coated the room, the only cure was to paint surfaces that had to be handled with another paint to seal in the dust, I don't think we ever got the floor clean.

Think of a snowmaker at a ski resort, you squirt high pressure water into the air and it freezes, now think of high pressure paint sprayed in the air, the fine mist dries before it hits the floor, Put the two together and you have black snow on the floor, as for the painted surfaces the surface would rub off on your hands.
