With all the wonderful advice that I received from you guys I did what you told me to do. I made the panels and wrapped them with the velvet and it came out great! Here is a pic of how it turned out.

If so, than that is way easier than expected. Maybe I can fill each panal with some sound dampening material to help accoustically?? Is that a good idea or scratch that?

It's so awesome when the light bulb moment goes off, isn't it? wink.gif

Here are shots of velvet stapled directly to the drywall. The wall is 12' wide and the upper edge is 1/4 birch ply I had leftover.with fabric stapled to the back and then brad nailed to the wall. The velvet was then stapled on the sides and where the screen would hide it. Second strip was done the same way and stapled where the base trim would hide it and around the outlets for my powered speakers.
