So as mentioned earlier, I am loving my new background! I also have several paper backgrounds that hang in the garage, but you never know when you'll need a portable stand for a background. You can purchase a Background Stand if you're not the DIY type, but if you want to be thrifty, I have a tutorial today for a homemade version, using inexpensive PVC pipes - - -
I came down to him putting it together minutes before the party:
So, the way this goes together - - The two side pieces are glued into formation. And then the 3 pieces (one on the top, 2 on the bottom) that go across aren't glued, so that I can pull the stand apart for storage when it's not in use.
I don't have exact measurements, but I know it's 5 feet tall and 5 feet across. You stare at the picture to see what kind of elbow/corner PVC pieces he used, and meanwhile I'll ask him and let you know....
