I used 4 1x4s from Home Depot as the frame.

Used blackout cloth for the screen.

I'm very happy how my project came out for $33.

However, now I'm not sure how to hang the screen.

It's fairly heavy.

Ideally I'd like a solution where I could take the screen down when not in use (this is in our living room) and there wouldn't be some eye sore hardware sticking out of the wall.

The screen is 79"x64"

I used 2 chrome towel hooks - 2 screws and a backplate with a single hook in the center (suggest screwing into a stud). I found them for about $2 each at HD. I then took 2 hefty screw in eyelets and after predrilling, ran them into the 1x4 the long way (4"). You have to raise the bottom out pretty far to slide the eyelets over the hooks, and is probably best done by 2 people. You can just barely see the eyelet and hook at the top when the screen is in place.

Failure is not an option. It comes bundled with every Microsoft product
