i just finished my living room (mostly). i want to put my home theater in there.
the screen, i need to hang it on the wall. so i will have to make some blocking to mount the screen to. this blocking, just 2x4's, will be screwed to the wall. is there anything that i could do to protect the new paint ? i doubt it, but thought i would ask.

yeah, but i think i am going to put some wax paper between, its worth a shot. yes, i am going to paint them.

it needs to stick out. as when the screen is down, it will be going over the front door = door handle.

anyway, here is a pic with some of my gear ready to be hooked up.

What difference does it make if the two bys damage the paint behind them, once they come off there will be fastener holes in the wall that need to be fixed.


Are these going to be permanently affixed two bys, or something you put up when you want to use the screen?
yeah, i know. but i figure that if i do limit the damages, it will be that much easier to fix.


semi-permanent = this setup will be in this room for a while, year, 2, idk.
i have to get the "man cave" in the basement fixed up before i move the theater down there. and right now, i have to worry about the main house first, and there is still a lot of work up here to do. so, yeah. they are permanent, for now.
