Haha!
I've had enough painting for a while

I'm hoping to get a start on taking off the current bar top this weekend and hopefully picking up the wood to start working on the new top.
That project is going to require a lot of help - I don't have the right tools, or skills to do carpentry!

Re: PTAaron's Movie Room/Game Room/Bar

Full shot of the room as it looks tonight:


Closer in shot of the "flat black spray painted Lutron dimmers":


They turned out pretty good - I need to do a little touch up on the wall plate in around the screw holes... but I'm pretty happy with it. I planned to do a couple layers of clearcoat just to make it more durable, but I didn't have time to get to the store, and I'm not very patient so I went ahead and installed them anyway!

Re: PTAaron's Movie Room/Game Room/Bar

For your amusement... I found pictures of my "second" home theater setup - the one I had in my condo. I had a setup in my apartment before this - but it only counts if you consider a 27" CRT TV with a surround sound receiver and no subwoofer a home theater.
Anyway - this was what I had prior to July 2010 when we moved - actually this was before my wife too...:








EDIT: Oops... the auto-censor feature of the site edited the humorous title of the last picture from 2006, so I had to change it on the server... there ya go!

Re: PTAaron's Movie Room/Game Room/Bar

The black switches look way better now

Oh yeah, and your current setup looks way better than your second

Agreed - looks great. Now, if someone would only paint those ceiling tiles - they are just so white!

Yeah... the "second" setup wasn't great, but it got the job done for the time being

If I do anything more in the movie area without finishing the bar, I will be dealing with a very irate wife
On the plus side - the weather this weekend is going to stink, so I wouldn't be able to paint the tiles anyway!

Re: PTAaron's Movie Room/Game Room/Bar

I should check mapquest to see how far Novi is from here - totally do a drive by theater gander!

We are actually going through that way next week on our way to Niagara Falls......

Oh nice! Depending on how you plan to get into Canada you might go right past...

EDIT: No... I looked again... you'd have to be pretty lost to end up going past Novi If you somehow ended up on 96 instead of 69 you'd still get to Detroit to cross over, and you'd go right by.

Re: PTAaron's Movie Room/Game Room/Bar

Ended up solving a little mystery that has been going on for the past 2 weeks... My PS3 had been randomly turning on and then not responding to commands from my Harmony remote. Last night I discovered that my Harmony PS3 adapter has died!
That stinks... I thought I picked it up for around $30 as a refurbished piece, but I can't find them for that cheap anywhere now!
