Its a DIY screen from home depot.. They had a 48'' X 72'' cardboard screen, shiny white on one side and regular cardboard on the other...I used thick black cloth to mask it and ended up with a 72'' screen.. the masking doent look straight in the pic but thats just the picture angle..otherwise its perfect...

The whole thing cost me $18.00

Here is the pic..

hey,


what section in HD is that cardboard in? Lumber? Flooring? these HD Associates here don't have a good idea of what they do and don't have in stock.


I could not guess what a home builder or for that matter a home fixer upper would use cardboard fer. hmmmm, other than a DIY Projector Screen, but there's no Home Theater Section in HD.


is this what you call the parkland board?

I really cant remember what section the cardboard was in..

All i remember that it was not in the Lumber section.....

I really asked the first person I saw about where I can find a big piece of cardboard, pref white..and the guy knew exactly where it was...

I have been to the HD many times since but never thought to look what section it was...I will check again tomorrow if you cant find it in yours

I picked up the same / similar thing from Home Depot. It was more like a piece of paneling than cardboard in its construction. Heavier, too. Wood-ish on the back, shiny white plastic-ish on the front. I'm pretty sure it's what would be used to panel the walls in a bathroom. ~$10 for a sheet so I bought two while I was there with the truck. I found mine back with the other paneling & pegboard.


I'll check the extra piece when I get home and see what the sticker on the back says.

I found mine in the bathroom paneling/sideing section in Lowes, it was a pricy $12. :D


Nobody there had a clue when I asked either. :D

I bought the same material to make my 69" screen, but I nailed it to a frame made by 1x1s (I think that's what they are) so I can hook to my entertainment unit and unhook it easily. That way, I can still watch my TV for stuff I don't need on a big screen, but still enjoy the big sound. :)


The whole thing set me back by a whopping $15, though...

That's the product made by Do-able that some people are using. I've been tempted to pick it up. People here have said it is comparable to Parkland Plastics Polywall for image quality. It's bigger than the cardboard, which I haven't seen.
