Jason Marlowe, Mike White, and Jesse Tricola from Victory Faith Church in Oregon City, OR brings us this better-than-pallet design.
They took an idea that they saw and went even bigger and better. They got used fence planking from a couple different people in their church, and bought the left over of what they needed from Home Depot.
They then took a flame torch and lightly burned each piece individually to make the grain pop and give a unique look to each piece.
The frame was built with all 2×4’s and it was 24′ wide and 10′ high mounted to their back wall with a slight bend to make the back part straight but the sides at a 10 degree angle.
After a day of meticulously measuring, cutting and making each piece to look random, they hung small 40watt bulbs on hanging cables they got from IKEA for $5 each.
The entire project (minus lighting) cost about $300-$400 (because a lot of fencing was donated).
Lighting was 4 Chauvet Bar lights on the wood wall, 8 Par 64 cans for the white wall and above the screen, 2 more Chauvet bar lights on each side facing the side arch.
