ExposedBrickHomeProjectionScreen
ExposedBrickHomeProjectionScreen2Instructables user Falkenberg posted process photos of converting a wall into a projection screen with a beautiful exposed brick frame. With the help of a friend who’s a professional painter, they stripped through the layers of paint, wallpaper, and plaster down to the brick wall and cleaned the bricks with a wire brush. After sealing the bricks to prevent further crumbling and filling in the screen area with putty, they gave the wall a fresh coat of paint meant for projection surfaces. The final result is a totally unique and inexpensive home entertainment wall that looks good to boot.
