Did some re-figuring of how I want to do the walls. Instead of completely covering the walls with fabric, I decided to go back to the original design and have acoustic panels in certain spots.
These were originally spec'd as Quest panels by DE. However, I decided to go the DIY economical route. I still have a LOT of Linacoustic left, so I am going to use that in the spaces specified. I know it won't perform the same as a Quest panel, but this is one of the concessions I decided to make to get this project moving again.
I have painted the rest of the walls black in the areas where there won't be any acoustic panels (two coats), and gave a single coat to the columns which I will also cover with fabric. I also changed the fabric that I will use. Was originally going with GOM FR701, but saw the Acoustimac DMD fabric that Big used in the Beam and Pole intrerruptus thread.
Ordered samples, and like it a lot better than the GOM (much less $ too). So I ordered 20 yards of it that will be here on Friday (just in time for a long weekend!).
I will still probably use the Sunshine FR701 in the light tray.
Haven't fully decided the trim color yet, but am leaning toward golden oak stain. That will still give me a black and gold flavor, but it will be much more subtle.
So all that means that I need an upholstery stapler for this weekend. Saw this one
on the Harbor Freight site, and we have one in town. Bonus is it can use the T-50 staples so I wouldn't have to special order any. Reviews look good. Anyone use this one?
Hopefully this all means I will have some pics to share after the long weekend!
