Cleaning some stuff up, clearing space. Here are some better pics of one end of the "L"...the area without the projection setup:
That should give a pretty good idea of the layout. The bar tables are probably my favorite pieces of furniture:
I found them on eBay. They were pricey, around $1500 for the pair. They have cheaper ones, but I really like the finish on these. I was told that they are finished right at the Jack Daniels facility. Ironically, I don't drink Jack Daniels...or whiskey, for that matter. Nothing but the finest beer in the world:
When we got the house, it had some LED dome lights in the basement. I replaced them with some fans that I really like:
The fans have dimmers with LED lighting. It is not very much light, so I had to resort to adding some floor lamps (remember, I don't want to run new wiring). I had one lamp already, and I ordered a mostly matching one from Amazon, for $38:
No expense was spared on packaging!
After assembly, where "most" of the pieces went to together without a hitch....I can confidently say that this $38 lamp rivals some $39 lamps, in quality. Also shown in the above picture is the Best Buy beverage fridge. I think I got this on sale for less than $200. Let me tell you, this thing really cools the drinks down....and it is very convenient to not have to run upstairs every time you get thirsty! Three storage ottomans hold whatever, and also allow for extra seating. They were purchased with a different use in mind, but are being re-purposed.
At the same time that the electrician was installing the fans, I had him replace all of the "old school" receptacles and switches with a more modern decorator style. It's a small change, but an improvement for a house that is 40 years old:
Anyway, lots more cleaning up to do, and after that....a TON to do!
