So, what did you add to your theater this weekend?

I'll start off with adding contrast light behind my tv. It really makes the image much easier to see!



I used some left over 5/8" Incandescent rope light that I used for my cove lighting. I then hooked it up to a left over lutron spacer remote dimmer switch I had from a previous project. It ties in nicely with my grafik eye. It will dim up and down with the rest of the lights when I use the ir remote.


So, what did you do?

Looks great. What type of lights are those?

Thanks! Like I mentioned, I used some left over 5/8" incandescent rope light from my cove light.

I went downstairs for the first time in about two months. I carried down the first 8 studs that will eventually become framing for drywall.

Man that looks fantastic! The only thing I did was add about 4.5 hours on my bulb.
