    I want to build a double sided screen. Approx 110inch diagonal.

    On one side plain white. On the other dark grey. So I've got the best of both worlds. White for night time with the lights out. Dark grey for during the day. I guess it would be on a couple of hooks so that I could easily remove it.

    Any ideas how to go about constructing it?

    Make a wooden frame as usual, stretch and staple white on one side, and grey on the other. Then fit some velvet covered architrave (border) on each side to cover the staples.

    I managed to build it today. I was in a rush so sorry. No piccies.

    I've got to come up with a better way to hang it then hooks. Something simple so I can turn it around a lot more easier.
