IF that's really what it looks like, it was only there for the split second I took the picture. I guarantee my son (who was holding the fabric) would have said something. And it sure wasn't there when I pulled the fabric back over.

Pretty sure it is what it is....but don't let it bug you.

Got a little done, it being Super Bowl weekend and all....


Picked the trim profile I wanted.


Cut it to fit both sides of the room. This is not "installed," it's just sitting in place.




Here's a detail on that little exposed corner piece.


Picked the trim color I want and painted the trim. Put back in place, still not "installed."




I also covered two more sections of the area behind the screen with black GOM, but I don't see the point of posting a couple of pictures of a black wall.

Wow,

That looks really nice. Well done. I really like that trim detail, very unique. Is that a gold color? It is hard for me to tell from the photos and my monitor.

Little by little, step by step, that is how you get it done.

Regards,

RTROSE

Looking good Tom. You might get your man card back if you carry on with this rate of progress.

Yes, it's the Behr Gold Buff. It went on looking more of mustard color but dried to correct color.

That's the color I'm expecting to do all of the trim and the rest of the ceilings. Then I'll go two shades darker for the rest of the walls. Also, I'm (OK, NOT me, the LOGANESS is) planning to use the two shades to do the light sponge technique on the burgundy painted part of the walls in the pics. That SHOULD pull it all together nicely.

I like to be proactive. I KNEW SOMEbody would pick up on it.

I would hope with a joint looking like that you would not need to "qualify" to its status as "not installed". Oh, well knowing those who visit here I can see your concern for calling off the wolves before they start to circle.

Will the gold buff dry with a metallic sheen to it or is it a "regular" paint? Looks good though and the "sponge technique" will look very nice.

No, no metallic. It's the Behr Premium Plus Ultra flat enamel. Dries VERY flat, and I was actually able to handle it when dry without the chalking. It's a small room and I want to keep reflections to a minimum.

In order to get the VERY flattest finish I used the flat ceiling base for the walls and ceiling which WILL chalk(or burnish, I think they call it) when touched.

That trim is lovely. Do you think you need to back it with 1/4 inch stock so it's not shy of and away from the panel? Either proud of the panel or even with it? You are may hero.

What he said. Try it flush with the fabric face.

I'll give it a shot, but I kind of like the reveal. I was actully looking for a small trim to put on top to have it angle back to the wall, but it was just "too much" to add anything else to it. I couldn't find anything I liked. AND they even have the matching small dot pattern that runs along the top, but it just didn't look right to me.

Weekend update.....

Light work weekend. Literally. I mean that in literal sense. Ended up taking all day. A couple of trips to the big boxes, because one NEVER has EVERYTHING you need. Turns out each of the cutouts was slightly different so each one was a "custom" install. I really didn't want to start cutting drywall. Also, "Made in China" directions are no help whatsoever. Anyway, got them up. I guess finishing the outlets is next weekend's project.

Friday, the sconces showed up.


Sconces installed.






These pics are all with the lights off. Couldn't get a good pic with them on. They take standard Medium 100w bulbs. I didn't notice any real difference in the amount of light versus the bare bulbs.


And, oh, yeah. While I was painting the trim, LOGANESS made a couple of tests for sponging the walls. Turns out, I don't like any of them. I think I'm leaving the walls plain burgundy. It's such nice finish that I really don't want omess with it.

I had a section of painted wall in the bar area that I need to second coat, so she worked there.

First test. Tried a little design. Didn't work out.


Then went to high pressure, heavy coverage pattern. Still didn't like it.


High pressure, light coverage.


Light pressure, light coverage.


Light pressure heavier coverage.


So, Saturday night we went out to dinner and I saw some wallpaper that looked like suede. I think THAT'S what I wanted, but I'm not sure I'd like it in the burgundy. So for now, plain walls.

Ordered carpet. Once that goes in, I can build the screen frame and screen wall.
post #3166 of 3638
Agree, plain wall look much better.
post #3167 of 3638
That's the one good thing about paint, don't like it paint over it. For the record, I agree with you not much on that look you ended up with. I do like the paint that looks like suede, it is a faux finish too.

Keep it up, you're making progress.

Regards,

RTROSE

For the record, forgot to upload pic of the baseboard trim. Again, just sitting in place, not installed. Will install after carpet. And if I'm not going to sponge the walls, I reckon I can go ahead an install the trim on top of the fabric.



BTW, I tried the top trim flush with the panels and it didn't really make much of difference to me. And it will be more work to fit 1/4 spacer behind it. If I do that, I have to make that look good and then recut some of the corners because it throws the measurements off. It's just not worth it for something that really doesn't make a difference.

Your carpet installer is going to prefer that you install the baseboards before the carpet goes down.
post #3170 of 3638

Not mine. He says it's easier to install and the tack strips get under the baseboard so that you don't have that problem of placing something against the wall and it sits on the tack strip and tends to lean forward on the soft carpet.
post #3171 of 3638
Use 1/2 to 5/8 spacer boards to install the baseboard, You will need to anticipate touching up before and after carpeting. You can wait until after but if you do make sure the carpet layer sets the tack strip a fair distance from the wall. Reason being if he parks it against the wall and then you come along and snug the baseboard on top of the carpet, the carpet will be captured forever and it will be a big mess to remove and replace.
post #3172 of 3638
I like the plain walls as well. If Loganess is hot on texturing, you might want to try the negative ragging technique. I have had good success with it.

You paint the darker base color. You then paint over it with the lighter color, mixed 1/3 paint, 1/3 glaze and 1/3 water. While still wet, take a clean wet rag and pat it over the mixture, removing random material.

Optional, add a SMALL amount of gold, siver or pearl accent to get the wall to sparkle. Might not be the best idea for a theater.

LOGANESS wanted to cut with a glaze, but I'm thinking that I don't want anything shiny on the wall. She mention the rag off method as well.

So as mentioned earlier, paint is cheap. I'll live with it plain and if I hate it, I'll try something different.

Logan,
Really like how your "chair-rail" trim is turning out! Great choice of sconces, and... one more vote for NO faux finish on those nice painted walls. Looking good!!

Well, if past performance is any indication of future performance, IF I need to pick up the carpet, I probably need to replace the baseboard and probably the fabric, too. It WILL be a mess!

Thanks! They were surprisingly cheap. Another "I figure if I HATE them, it's not THAT big of a loss to replace."

No pics this weekend. But that DOESN'T mean I didn't do anything. Although, I did have to make a trip to NJ for a family thing.

I dressed out all of the outlets around the stage. All six of them. And it took all afternoon. Everyone of them was a challenge because the drywall wasn't cut out around the boxes cleanly. And trying to use a drywall saw to cut through DD+GG is a mess. (NOTE TO TED: After three years, it's STILL sticky!) Especially since I had the fabric up and the wood trim in place. And because there is two inches of Linacoustic, I STILL had to use extension boxes even though I initially used adjustable boxes.

So, lesson learned. Cut the drywall around the boxes and get the adjustable box extended as far as it will go BEFORE adding the trim and fabric.

Then I cleaned up a lot of the little clutter I had accumulated and decided I wasn't going to need any longer. I'm pretty well at a stopping point in the theater area until I get the carpet in. Then it's build the screen and screen wall, corner traps, attach moulding and touch up. Don't think I'll actually mount the projector until I get some work done on the equipment closet. Oh, and decide what I'm going to do with the soffit above the stage.

In the meantime, it will be clean up the bar area and get started painting, sanding and staining.

Do NOT underestimate the value of those so-called "multi-tools" they sell these days. I'm talking about these things and similar. The speed and easy with which they go through drywall is humbling if you've ever used a keyhole hand saw, which it sounds like you just did.

How would these work on nails? I have about 100 16d nails I have to try and cut off (don't ask). Would one of these be able to cut through them?
