My goal in the theater was old school gaudy. I remember seeing Star Wars for the first time re-ran when I was a child in probably 1980 or so. My mom took me to this old theater that was all gold foil and red velvet with curtains. I believe in TX or OK. I really wanted to recreate that velvet, red and gold, and old theater feel. All while staying state of the art, convenient, and comfortable though. Wife gave me free reign and was doubting me every step of the way....She's now loving all of it (except still hates my curtain)
Next step was to finish paint, decorations and seating. Seeing as I've done every type of remodel imaginable and am an MSEE (DSP, semiconductor expert) this felt great to be basically done with a kitchen, a bar, a theater and a bathroom all in only 5 months with just my own 2 hands. I use to own a company that built custom acoustic and electric guitars/basses. So the woodworking was no concern to me.
Touch up paint was still needed and some little tweaks here and there but it was finally functional mid-August 2015. Some decorations added.
FYI, Philips Hue lighting systems are amazing for ambience lighting in your theater. Any color and brightness you want all on a phone app.
