I'd say we put a nice dent in the scrap wood supply

Oh really? I've used my handheld saw hundreds of times throughout my basement and theater build. This would have been the last time I needed it for awhile and as I was cutting the very last bass trap vent, the saw started smoking and a burning electric odor immediately followed. I had about 7" left to cut and the saw no longer works...perfect. I didn't have any jig saw blades either....great, so had to finish using a drywall saw.

That floor however is 1 1/2" thick and I had to cut 3 vents so I'm thinking those and the 3/4" mdf really gave it a beating. I should have got my hands on a corded saw for thick cuts like that.

Last bass trap vent is cut!! We plan on giving the basement and theater a deep cleaning on Wednesday and hopefully start painting Thursday!! Saturday, we are hosting a St. Louis Blues party for their first home game by throwing it on a portable screen outside with the Epson projector, 2 Behringer VP1520 speakers and an 18" Behringer subwoofer and Sunday going paintballing all with a group of people so unfortunately there wont be much working on the theater this weekend

I'll let you know how the ribs turn out, I'm going to do exactly what you said and hopefully I can inherit your rib smoking skills.
THANK YOU! Best off topic tangent ever. Love watching the theater progress and drooling over the great smoked brisket.

We've got paint!! I ran to HD to look and found these 2 reds my wife and I liked. We ended up getting a gallon of the red on the right which is "Dark Crimson" in flat

After we found the red, it was time to find a black. I asked the associate if they had "mouse ears" from Behr because I wanted the blackest black I could get. She said that was a Disney color and found it in the system. After looking into it, then she said she had an even blacker black for me Ended up getting 2 gallons of this in flat

I also picked up a bunch of corner, crown and quarter round trim samples to determine what sizes I want before I pick it all up on Wednesday. And more good news, I just found out my original Thursday plans just fell through so now I'll have an entire dedicated day to paint the theater!!

I have been thinking of the best way to install the led's behind the trim and as I was at Lowes putting a few pieces together, I came up with this idea to glue half round behind the crown for the lights to run on. Here's the concept:

I painted a portion of the soffit before putting up the crown molding so I wouldn't have to paint behind the trim with limited space. I then installed the corner trim and crown and good news is I still have enough leftover to do the bar upstairs so the wife is happy about that

Painted all the trim pieces which took about 3 coats to fully cover with the flat black. The first coat just sort of streaked the trim and the 2nd really covered most the white.

Once the trim was painted, I took the half round trim, globbed liquid nails about every foot or so and set it into the crown molding. I originally tried getting the caulk gun in there but the limited space wouldn't allow so this was the next best effective way to apply the glue.

It took about 2 gallons of black paint to finish the ceiling, columns, soffit and the wall behind the screen. Next, I need to paint the rest of the theater red, install chair rail and put up more quarter round for under the soffit

You seem to be making some real good progress, man! Keep up the good work!

I really like the trim pieces you have chosen, especially the crown moulding. Looks like a cool way of making space for the led strip!

Is it just me or are many of your pictures rotated 90 CCW?? No matter what, you should still keep showing us a lot of pictures. Our brains feed of that stuff you know

Thank you very much! After sampling trim pieces and debating on styles, I realized that I was going to have to get all the trim from 2 separate stores. I picked up the corner trim and quarter round from Home Depot and bought the half round and crown molding from Lowes. Luckily the stores aren't too far from each other.

As for the 90 degree pictures, for some reason when I post photos from my phone, they always rotate. I fix them when when I get into work the next day with an actual computer so they'll be upright tomorrow.

It may not be your job, but perhaps it's your opportunity.

After the progress today, it's actually starting to look like a theater! The only part if the project the wife doesn't know about is the led's behind the crown molding. I didn't tell her because I want to see her facial expression when she walks into the theater and sees them for the first time. That however won't be until I'm completely finished painting and carpet is installed.

Looking good for sure. On the photos, are you taking them with the phone upright with in profile? Try taking your phone landscape and see if they upload better.

Yes I'm taking them upright. I'll try a couple landscape photos tomorrow and see if that helps but my photos are also smaller than my earlier build pics and I haven't changed anything. Hhmmmm

The projector mount from B&H Photo came in today. My goal tomorrow is to take my son to hockey practice in the morning, then come home to apply the red paint in the theater before having to get the sound equipment setup in our driveway for us hosting the first St. Louis Blues home game. I'll post pictures of that setup tomorrow

Made it to Home Depot today for another gallon of black paint before hockey practice. Came home and was able to apply 2 coats of red to the upper walls in the theater

Next step is to install the chair rail and more trim on the columns and walls. I still have some time to do that since the carpet isn't scheduled to ship until the 17th.

Woke up today and went paintballing for about 6 hours with a group of people...needless to say I'm a little sore and have a few welts on my body. Afterwards, I was able to come home and install the sconces, surround speakers, Grafik Eye and finish the electric in the theater

Wow! You managed to do all that after 6 hours of paintballing?!? You sir, are productive

The colors and the LED strip looks great. It is definitely starting to look like a theater.

We actually bought the pull down screen from Ebay a couple years ago that we just use for outside events like that, the theater screen will be fixed and never leave the room. I hang the screen above my garage door on 2 white hooks that blend into the trim and are never noticed. Funny I bought the pull down screen and a couple days after receiving it, the UPS guy walks up my driveway again with yet another really long box. The company actually sent me a second screen.

The colors and the LED strip looks great. It is definitely starting to look like a theater.
Thank you very much. I need to call hitlights today about the led's because they don't go off 100%. When you try and power them off, there is still a soft red glow coming from them so I need to make sure there isn't an issue with the power supply and the settings are correct. I have them unplugged for now until I figure it out

With all that work why not just use imgur and post them so people do not have to click on the images?

Is Imgur a photo app like photobucket?

Just received an email from flooringinc.com. Carpet is in the hands of R&L carriers and in transit. I wasn't expecting it to ship until next week but since the painting is all done, bring it on. Once carpet is installed, I'll finish more trim work, install the door, touch up the walls and start shopping for a screen and build the false wall. Also still need to spray paint the vents, step light louvered covers, atmos and surround speaker grills and the Grafik Eye cover.

Apparently there is a malfunction in my wireless remote receiver for the led's so hitlights is shipping out a new one today. In the mean time, I'm shopping for a matte black door knob for the theater door. Still debating on if we want lockable or not, but I think I like this style:

Keyed version:

We used to help Santa hide Christmas presents in the theater area before we were at this point in the build. I suppose IF we ever need to store something for him, the theater would be a good area, but for how long? How long could we actually keep something in the theater before my son wants to watch a movie? We still have a small storage room and our closet to hide stuff but perhaps I'll just get the keyed option just in case...

It may not be your job, but perhaps it's your opportunity.
