    This is pretty cool:

    Definitely going to give this a try! Kind of a similar idea to the $3,000+ Screen Innovations Black Diamond Zero Edge Screen - lets you see a projector picture during the day (or with lights on). Check out a video of it in action:

    Basic idea:

    1. Buy a large sheet of 1/4" MDF (or just use a bare wall)
    2. Buy metallic paint, matte paint, and a paint roller
    3. Roll on a couple coats & enjoy!

    There are a couple charts of recommended mixes (black to gray) depending on how bright your ambient light in the room is. Simple & cheap, I like it! :thumbsup:
