Ok, so I suck at updates.
Here's the planned color scheme (so far)
Black: Mickey Mouse Ears Black by Behr in flat (amazingly black paint)
HT recliners (Black Leather)
Screen Wall (black GOM/Velvet or something)
Non-Fabric Walls: Sherwin Williams Duration Matte Finish - Wall Street (a Dark gunmetallish grayish-blue)
Fabric Walls: TBA (still working on that)
Cherry: cabinets, baseboards/casings/crown
Flooring: Masland "Athens"
As far as updates go:
1. Painting: I've got almost everything painted. Even though Duration is supposed to be "1 coat" even over dark primer, it is taking 2 coats to get it just right. I've never been able to pain just a single coat with any brand of paint.
I need another gallon to finish a second coat on some of the soffits and around the cabinets.
2. Trim is starting today. I'll try to get some baseboards in as the mill called yesterday saying my order is ready. Stupid rain has kept me way behind, though.
3. We finalized the carpet. 142 sq yards sounds like a ton! Hopefully it should be in at the end of the week/early next week with the goal of having it installed next week.
I might actually meet my wife's request of having everything at least sitting downstairs before Thanksgiving!
