OP here, canvas was sourced from some place online. It was ~$20 shipped. I've long forgotten the details. Search my name, I might have posted it on here before.
As for final thoughts. It has gain, but I'm not 100% satisfied. I may dabble with another formula or get a newer projector. Dunno. I'm really anal. Don't get me wrong, it looks great, but I want moar
And some final pics of my entire Home Theater redo A rundown of what all was done:
Removed the crown molding (it was installed by a drunken cross eyed midget), had new drywall mud / texture added in
Several outlet / intercom holes patched. There was an outlet below the screen (YES, I'm THAT anal)
Removed a ceiling vent that was 'in line of site' between projector and screen (YES, I'm THAT anal)
All drywall had a once over for gouges, wrinkles, whatever
Ran HDMI/Coax/Ethernet thru outer wall to attic to run to projector, a DIY OTA antenna I made, and my home network
Ran a new outlet in the attic so I could have projector power cord out of sight out of mind
Installed a new ceiling fan
Changed my single gang to double gang which required a new romex run. This allows me to turn the fan blades/light on independent of each other. Lights also have a dimmer. BALLER AS ALL HELL!!!
Changed out brass hardware with nickel (I hate brass with the intensity of a thousand suns!)
Several several coats of new paint on the ceiling/walls. A nice cream/dark green from Behr (Cottage white / moss green)
Onto the pics:
Crappy ass crown molding caulk job
Two tone paint? WTF?
This was how the projector was wired for over 2 years
Yeah, power and video just dangling for the world to see, sigh.
Ho boy what have I got myself into?
Drywall is FUN! All those blobs, the nails were working their way out of the studs. So my drywall guy pounded em back in, used screws, and mudded over everything. God bless my drywall guy.
Prime time! 18 man hours priming (3 people painting)
Walls/ceiling done. 25 man hours (3 people painting)
Double gang DONE. This one was a dirty little whore. Note to self: 2 single gangs DO NOT EQUAL a double gang...trollololol.
Sexy new fan with dim-able lights
Ignore the dust. Truck bed liner is a bitch to get clean
Oh yeah baby, keystone jacks FTW
Power/HDMI to the ceiling
No more ceiling vent, lol
Woot. Lovely new nickel hardware.Edited by mike 01hawk - 10/8/12 at 11:01pm
