I've had my projector since about 2011 and have been shining it on walls ever since. Finally decided after seeing free shipping and a discount on the 150" screen at monoprice that I'd order it. It sat in the box while I was up in my attic in 120 degree heat running cat6 network cables around my house. This included drilling from the attic all the way down to my first floor but thats not important for this thread.
When I was planning out how I wanted it to look I decided to look into red themed rooms and decided on a kind of light red wine-ish looking color for the walls and a near black onyx color for the trim and ceiling.

Entrance to the room
During construction, wish the builder would have let me run network and speaker cable when prior to drywall..
How monoprice ships their screen, has an internal box with corner reinforcement. I bet you could run it over and it'd be ok
The worst part, working in the attic. Wore a full body cover suit with goggles, a breather mask and gloves
First time painting a darker color, a word of advice, take your time and blend each coat well to avoid striping
I was in need of a nice way of blacking out the windows to avoid and light bleed behind the screen, found a company on here with a product called blackoutez. Worked perfectly for my needs.
I lied earlier, had to go back in my attic to install a H shaped 2x4 reinforcement area for my projector. Was a lot faster than running cables.
Slowly getting there
Ran speaker wires under the baseboards/carpet edge, didn't want to mess with in-wall so soon...
More work to come decorating and a getting a nicer couch that what I have now.
In the future I would like to get a couch similar to this
