Ah, so your a carpenter then. Save yourself some money and build your own screen for a few £££. I might even have some material I could give you. Where abouts are you based?

Do you do homers by the way? I need some work done in my movie room. We could help each other out if we are reasonably close :) (I'm in Antrim)

I've spare screen material and I'm pretty sure I've got some black velvet for the borders too.

I want to build my own screen now soup dragon, could I buy the remaining material from yourself? Or where did you order it from if your keeping it?
It means I can custom fit it due to the shape of the wall
