Inexpensive Outdoor Movie Screen


Our family loves watching movies and in the summer we enjoy outdoor movie nights.  Over the years Ian has created several screens for our flick viewing, but the one he created this summer was probably our favourite!

First he created a frame using 2x4's, although 1x4's would probably work just as well, we just happened to have the 2x4's left over from another project.

Then he wrapped the frame with a painter's drop cloth that we picked up at Home Depot.  He secured it to the back of the 2x4 frame with staples.

Finally he hung the screen from the back of our garage using large hooks, one set on the frame and one set on the garage wall.

The screen measures about 5' x 8', and is just perfect.  We enjoyed several videos under the stars this summer and hope to be able to do this again next year!

Thanks for visiting!
Ian and Laura
