    Nice Rich. Where did you get the sconce light?

    I got four of them on clearence at Target of all places, paid less than 20 bucks for all of them. actually had those lights before the house was built. I plan in a wierd way, but i plan.

    they are in pairs, one on each wall at that distance form the front wall, the other two another 10 feet back.

    First thing I really need to do is find a website to host my pics, then take the pics and post them! I plan on documenting it on here. This is all pending on a refi of the house.

    Here's one of the screen wall with all the doors open. An update (not pictured), in the far left corner, down low sits a BD player ontop of the A1.


    The back half...

    Looks good guys!!

    Inset pic is of the 3 rear surrounds..they're white so it's kinda hard to see.

    got about a billion from start to finish, but none other since the burgandy paint. also remember the paint is temporary unil i can afford the 30+ yards of fabric i need to do the walls with. (these things are never done)

    i need to shoot a rear view from the front right of the screenwall, to show PJ would do it now but I havnt fixed the trim around the PJ since replaced my dying 4805.

    aw hell, hang on a few mins.

    What kind of flat black did you use? I want my front wall and ceiling black like that. I've heard some flat blacks aren't a good flat black. Home Depot told me that Glidden is the only one that uses straight black, others add some colors to them and therefore aren't as dark or flat.

    Like Rich, I want the maroon color on the other walls. How do you like them Rich? Is that a flat or a semi-gloss?

    both the walls and celing of my room are behr premium plus flat interior from home depot.

    walls color is something called "wine tasting"

    celing i cant remember, i just said mix it just flat black, like what you would paint a theather inside with.

    That's what I have picked out!!!! Very nice color. They have some nice carpet to match that just happens to be on sale this month. I'm getting so pumped to get this thing going!!

    Michael, the front wall is all wood frames on hinges and those are covered with black speaker grille cloth from partsexpress.com. The ceiling is a Glidden flat black from Home Depot, just the one they told you about.

    Don't use anything but flat colors anywhere in your theater, you'll not like the reflections.

    Here's an older pic of the front wall with all the doors closed. The Sonotube sub is no longer there as I built a box and stuck it under the futon.
