    I've got a Da-Lite 92" retractable screen and I want to make it look better, it seems so unfinished just hanging there. I'm leaning towards removing the screen and framing it or just hanging some drapes around it. I like the idea of framing it because it will get rid of the ripples.
    What are most of you doing?

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Dan,

    The black velvet-like black-out material around screen is on a 45 degree angle and trimmed in oak casing. The screen actually sits back about 6" from the screenwall. My screen is attached to metal channel which is also has velvet-like material on it, so it blends nicely.

    That looks nice, David! Do you have a fixed screen already or did you have to mount that one?

    Dan,

    That Stewart screen is fixed, although it came unassembled and had to be put on the metal frame. I didn't get to help do the assembly.
