The room was originally a mild grey color..


So...I painted one wall white.. the wall that would be my screen.. looked great


Could'nt decide if I should use the opposite wall for a screen, so I painted that wall white..


Figured, I already painted 2 walls white, I'll paint the whole room while I'm at it..


Guess what.. Too much white!... now my display is washed out cuz the room is too bright!


Oh well, guess I know what I'll be doing this weekend..


Hey..but the window frames look great!! :)

Yeah, getting the wall color correct makes a big difference on picture quality. I went dark grays and blacks for the ceiling and side walls. Used Gray Tropics for the projector wall, and dark gray carpeting for the floor. Makes a huge difference, colors look much better, and the picture is a bit clearer because it isn't being washed out.

That's why I only painted the part of the wall that would actually be the screen, not the entire wall. du-uh!
