This is my Home Cinema Installation,

Its about an Projector, and the screen, i´ve build with a very low budget so you can also do something like this.

It´s not realy Step by Step cause i lost some pictures but i think its comprehensible.
I bought the projector 2nd hand for an very good price is an old acer dlp type, but it works still great.

While we refurbished our flat i got the idea to fit it on the wall in some kind, at the same time i found this great box in the junk, i think
its an ww2 ammo Box or something like that.
its realy big and heavyweight.

I want to hide all the consumer electronics and dvd´s, x box and stuff, so the box was perfect for that.

Step 1: Cleaning

at first i cleaned the box, straighten it out a bit so that it closed well and looks good.

I did not paint it again cause i like the rough sourface, and that you can see the age of that thing.

Step 2: Put an shelf in

so i cut an bottom shelf from 6millimeter plywood, with an Hole on the backsite for the cables and plugs

-than i cut 2 aluminium bars in the fitting wide, its just an L profile

-Drill two holes on each site in the box, put an M8 screw in with an Nut on the inside of the box

-Now you can put the L profile bars on the screws an got an good plating for the Plywood



Step 3: The dirty part

as i say we refurbished our flat and i wanted this clean look without any cables and wires so i decided to put a tube under the roughcast like the electricians do.
so i can pull the cables trough.

Thats alot of work and dust i can tell you, its not funny doing this in your flat.
But in the end its great when you got the box at the wall and can see no wires.

When its closed nobedoy knows what that should be and everybodey ask where the tv is at.

looks fantastic, i love it! especially the screen. what kind of paint did you use? i have just mixed myself some 'black widow' paint but it is grey and doesn't look as crisp and fresh as your beautiful wall.

I see you are an Audi fan. me too. I love the gas cap cable port.

Thank you for the kind words, i´m happy you like it.
I think this a great idea, and love the look of the wall and how you've done the frame.
Your throw wall came out great! What a cool idea.
