Robert Mays from Southeast Christian Church Next Gen in Louisville, KY brings us this great solution for the problem of the imposing drum shield. Work it into the design!
To create this design they started with a curved metal frame. They screwed white Coroplast panels to it and bordered the panels with black gaffers tape.
They mounted LEDs and border lights to the edges of the walls to create different layers of lighting. They already had all of the lights and the metal frame, so they only spent about $150 of the Coroplast.
