Paint black border on existing screen

I have a 159" screen that I used for a theater I had to take down years ago. Current room is smaller, and the throw distance will only allow for 140" screen.

Possible to paint black borders around the Da-lite screen to make the screen smaller? I do not want to cut and frame as I have windows (blacked out) behind the screen and I do not want them to show. The screen is just wide enough to cover the windows.

Any other options?

It can be done with paint or black tape or even black velvet attached to the screen.

I would go with the black velvet myself.

Thank you. Would the black velvet tape come off easily if we ever wanted to remove it years down the line?

That I don't know. I know painting is for good.
