As a DIYer, you’re always looking for new ways to add on to your house. Whether it be a serious renovation and repair project, or a simple addition of lamps to add a bit more light to a walkway, there is almost no limitation on what you can build.

This project, a backyard movie theater, is an easy, cheap, yet effective way of adding more entertainment and life to your home. If you’ve ever thought it would be too difficult to install yourself, check out this simple guide that will change your mind.

Here are the list of materials you’ll need for a backyard theater:

  • PVC Pipes
  • Industrial glue
  • Assorted screws and hooks. (they use self-drilling in the video)
  • Screen material.
  • Projector

Building your backyard theater:

  • Connect the pipes to form your frame. In the video — to save on time and labor — they bought 2 footers, rather than 10 footers. This allowed them to not worry about cutting down longer pipes to fit their desired dimensions for their frame.
  • Use glue to secure the connectors between pipes.
  • Attach the screen to the frame with screws, with about 8” between each.

Doesn’t sound too bad, does it? With a short list of materials, this project can be completed in just an hour! In no time you’ll be able to watch movies with the family, all while enjoying the outdoors in the privacy of your own home.

There are endless possibilities when it comes to DIY projects. Any sort of work that needs to be done on your home can most certainly be done without hiring an outside source, but DIY projects don’t have to be limited to repairs and maintenance (as seen in the video).
