Sounds like your wife is playing a trick on you. I hope she is!

Nope it's yellow. I think I'm gonna cry, that's $1400 worth of carpet and it'll be at least 2 weeks before it gets fixed.

That sucks man, sorry to hear bout the mix up. Really looking forward to seeing the final product.

They're similar colors, I can see how they'd be easy to mix up You should be able to get a discount for their mistake.

You sure it's not a yellowish black?

That's one hell of a woman you got there! Kuddos.

And top marks for Pain Infliction for seeing through the ruse.

The carpet looks awesome, but I have to say that I have never looked more forward to anything on AVS than to see pictures of your yellow carpet

I'm very happy with it I'm mostly happy that I can start actually using the theater while I finish the panels :-)

started to affix the walls to the sheetrock. velcro tape is added to panels and stapled, then i add the other side of the velcro to the panel and peel off the backing and set it against the wall for placement. carefully pull it off with a putty knife to aid, then staple velcro to the sheetrock. Soft side on the panels so that if i miss a bit it won't scratch/have a hard surface against the wall (just my theory anyway) it fits better then i expected it to! i'm happy with it.

Those panels look great. Really like the angled edges together with them stacked.

Those panels look great! Did you DIY those?

Yes, some pictures above of how. Saw what other people did and what material was available near me and I did my own thing to get close. I like the beveled edge and it strengthens the frame, also makes for a very clean corner

Great job and I feel your pain on making panels! Yours look better than mine.
