Manual pull down screen to frame

Has anyone ever taken a large screen (100" or bigger) out of the pull down mechanism and mounted it to a homemade frame? I am almost done with my room and don't really want the pull down, it looks too temporary. And the casing is white which will ruin my all black wall. I would rather have the screen permanently on the wall in a frame. But, I'm afraid if I cut it out, it might be very difficult to get it mounted without a bunch of wrinkles.

If anyone has ever attempted this I'd be curious if you have any suggestions or tips.

I might be better off just buying a new screen, but I figured this would at least be worth a shot before dropping the extra dough.

I haven't done it, but it wouldn't be entirely different than purchasing the material. I mean, you still gotta pull it tight and ensure there's no wrinkles.

You might have to be careful when disassembling the pull-down so you don't crease the material. Maybe even roll it up on a PVC pipe or something.

Good luck and hopefully somebody else has more
