Thanks. That's why we did it. We struggled with a design that provided access to everything and didn't give up too much space. The hallway took up 3' that could have made the theater larger, but we couldn't work it all out. We're happy with how this is now.

The area on the left will be a ticket booth...sort of like what BritInVA did. It will be lit from behind. The area on the right will be a set of glass shelves (to display the DVD that's playing). It will be lighted from above. Above the doorway, I'll be building a backlit marquis, inclufing the name of the theater. I've been debating whether to install clear bulbs below the marquis for the lower part of teh ceiling (like what BigMouthInDC did below his marquis above his kitchen area). I've really taken quite a few ideas from others on this forum...

I really need to pull the ideas together into one drawing...

CJ

That's how the painters did my home. They sprayed the ceiling twice letting it lap over on the walls. Then sprayed the walls and cut back in with a brush afterward.

Spent the afternoon cleaning up the basement and getting the first coat of finish color up in main part of the basement. Spraying is wonderful! We picked a color called Cottage White in flat finish. It's a relative of antique white and adds a bit of color.

We painted the inside of the two closets the same color as the ceiling. This photo was taken in complete darkness with flash only. You can see a hint of color where the ceiling meets the walls and in the closet.



The second (and final) coat should go up tomorrow. Steady progress is a good thing.

Looking good - from these pics looks like you did a great job on the drywall mudding.

Cheers,
Mark

Thanks, Mark. We really worked hard at it. In the end, I think it turned out well. I can still see spots that I really should address, but my friends tell me that I'm the only one who notices the spots.

I'm glad to be painting. It's much better than mudding and taping!

You've got quite the project going on too. Good luck!

You might have convinced me to try the sprayer route once I'm at that stage.

Once you try it...you'll never go back. I sprayed the entire basement ceiling, and two closets (with backrolling) in about 45 minutes. That was about 3 gallons of paint up. I could never have done it with a roller that quickly.

Just had a chance to look at the second coat that I sprayed on the ceiling last night in the sunlight...man it looks wonderful if I do say so myself. No lines, drips, or errors that I can see! Just nice even paint.

I'm so happy with my sprayer!

Today the wife was camping with the youngest at Cub Scout Camp, so my oldest and I worked in the basement. We installed the recessed lighting trim rings and baffles thus bringing permanent light back to the basement. We have a bit of final fitting to do, but we were moving quickly so we could get the first coat of final paint color up on the walls.

We began preparation for spraying by running a strip of blue tape along the perimeter of the room. This would serve as a cut in line . We then put up a 18" wide strip of craft paper around the entire room to prevent over spray from getting on the ceiling. When all of that was finished, we began to spray.

Here are the results:












The color looks wonderful and will look even better when we get the white trim installed! Spraying and back rolling took about 1 3/4 hours, as I was working alone. I also thinned the paint a little too much, so I have a few runs to deal with in the morning. I may be able to get the final coat up tomorrow morning *IF* it dries this evening. It's been raining all afternoon and I'm not sure how long it will take for the paint to dry.

I didn't get any tile work done today, but that's something that will hold for another day.

CJ

Why 2 coats of primer? I always thought 1 coat was sufficient.

I went on the recommendation of a contractor friend of mine. He said two coats will greatly reduce photographing (seams show through the primer and final coat of paint).

It was also a good chance to perfect my spraying technique.

Thanks all for the comments. I think we'll be happy with the color. The entire basement is really taking shape.

Loving the progress, CJ. The drywall and the paint look great - congrats!! You've seriously got me considering the sprayer option now.... Are you planning to sell this one off on craigslist like the drywall lift or are you going to hold on to it? If you're holding it, I might bug you to rent it from ya in a couple months (fingers crossed).

You have been quite the updating updater lately. I also appreciate the several nudges you've made on my thread. I PROMISE to really update it this time. You've motivated me!

Chris:

Welcome back! Thanks for the complement. I've been really happy with the sprayer, but I doubt I'll have a need for it when this project is done. I'm going to paint the ceiling in the theater in a month or so then the sprayer is up for bids. I'll let you know when it's time.

Once I got this thread caught up, it's hard not to keep it up to date.

Now go update your thread! I've got nearly as many posts on it as you do.

Been busy with scouting events lately (last three weekends were spent in the woods at camp). The next two weekends are basically free for working in the basement!

Got the masking pulled down from the ceiling. This 18" border of kraft paper was used to mask the ceiling from over spray when I painted the walls. When I removed the tape, a few sections of ceiling paint came with it, and there is a bit of over spray around the edges. I've been busy cleaning that up and touching the paint up. There are a few items for the "What I'd Do Differently" thread.

I also have finished the drywall in the equipment closet, primered and painted two coats. Will be ready to get the electrical outlets and the like in this weekend. Need to order a floor rack and a wall mounted rack for the equipment closet. The wall rack will hold the patch panels and video cable distribution panels. The floor standing rack will be used for my AV equipment and HTPC machine and storage array. That reminds me...I need to order the cases for the HTPC case and storage array.

Also purchased a book called "Trim Complete" by Taunton Press. I need to figure out how to trim around the two doors and single window in the main part of the basement. Once paint touch ups are complete, all that will be left in the main part of the basement will be install electrical fixtures, trim, and carpet (bar area excluded).

Photos later.

This weekend was quite productive. We finished touching up the paint in the entire basement. When we sprayed, we taped the corner between the ceiling and the walls. We also hung 18" craft paper along this corner to reduce chance of over spray. Well, I wish we would have used 36" craft paper, as we had a bit of over spray around the entire perimeter. I guess I got a little happy with the sprayer. This weekend we also had the boys sweep, vacuum, and mop the floors. This picked up most of the drywall compound and dust that was in the room. We also took down all of the plastic in the doorways, windows, and that covered items we didn't want sprayed the same color as the room. If that wasn't enough, we began prepping all of the electrical boxes for the preliminary inspection that I'd like to get done in the next day or so (I want to begin installing fixtures and can't until the boxes are properly dressed and inspected).

I took an hour and a half this afternoon to clean the drywall mud and paint off the two aluminum drywall stools that I used for the build. Man, those things were caked with dust and mud.

Here are some photos of the final paint in the basement. The stairway will be painted last (as it's the most susceptible to scratches and scrapes).

Bar end of the basement:

That's all for now.
