All together the cost was about $120 - half of that coming out of the sheet and the gallon of paint. You could easily save a few bucks by using all lumber and buying less paint. The whole project took about a week, but mostly because I was just doing a coat of paint a night. I'm really happy with the final result. As you can see, the brightness is uniform (no hotspots) and the blacks are very dark. Watching those Bengals lose never looked so good!
