Cut and trimmed all the styrene panels working on the design element of the docking bay. Also went to lowes to pick out the color scheme a little more. Looking for imperial gray or blue

I require construction photos. Enough with all the teasing.

What equipment are you putting in here? Looks like a kickass dedicated space.

I love the Microsoft Paint "representations" in the first post haha.

The guy who named his kids after Star Wars characters need to take it down a notch though.

This is fantastic! I'm definitely looking forward to seeing the progress on this. I am actually contemplating doing a star wars themed theater so that I could name my bar "Admiral Snackbar", but I take my hat off to you. It's dorktastic!

Yes, I am a girl. Yes, I am a dork. No, I will not sleep with you.

I changed the thoughts on the chair i wanted a gaming speaker chair but narrowed it down to this one since the other might not hold up to wear.

She has to be in to Star Wars as much as he is. I am sure the Princess Leia slave outfit is in the closet some where.

Ok, love the room. However, the kids room is totally awesome! I'm assuming you used one of the chaulk board paint kits? Any tips or tricks?

Thanks,

Mike

BUT as far as the room goes...I love me some SW. Seen the originals in the theater when I was very young and seen the new ones as well. Enjoy your room to its fullest man...

One of my favorite movie posters in my collection is from the re-release in 1997. The tag line on the bottom is "Three reasons why they build movie theaters." For me, it's why I built my home theater.

Love the kid's room, you know that chalk board is about the right size for a mini-theater...

Thanks,

Mike
