I have a few before and after shots:
This first pic is of my old diy frame. The black tape was sold by Dazian specifically for covering screen frames. This photo is taken very close. When standing a few feet away or sitting in a chair, you don't notice that it's tape:
This pic is of the nice wide velvet covered frame. You can also see just how much wider it is. Also, the seam where the pieces join isn't seen when seated:
Next is the new screen leaning up against the old screen:
Closeups of screen materials are next. I couldn't keep the glare off and so, I point my flash straight up and now they don't look white.
This is a closeup of the Dazian screen. It is a more silky material and is woven:
This is a closeup of the shoppingdeals screen. This is more vinyl-like:
I may eventually purchase the Phifer Shearweave screen material that is discussed in this thread:http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...5#post15676375
