I then glued a "Right-Angled-piece" of wood above that routered piece which will go around "3/4's of the room" & hide a RGB strip.

I then sealed all GAPS in the room that took around a days work. IMO, without doing this, no matter how good the wood is, it will always look 2nd rate.

Then all day today, I spent on TAPING-UP getting ready for a day of SPRAY-PAINTING undercoat tomorrow.

Only the best. In aussieland, it's called "Sikaflex® 11FC".

It's not cheap but it's very versatile & will never shrink. It has a permanent elasticity & sticks like sh1t to a blanket.

It's easy to work with. I was using it for years in the automotive trade. Wouldn't use anything else.

What I do though, so not to waste this stuff is cut the nozzle as small as possible. I then whined a GOOD 2-inch paper tape around the end of the nozzle which overlaps the end of the nuzzle by 1/4 of an inch, making sure it's well secured so it doesn't come off, leaving a small pointy end. I then cut a "45-degree angle", right at the end of the tape. By doing this, you can then direct the Sikaflex right into those small, sharp corners with no waste of product. Then simply run your finger along the edge, directing all the sikaflex into the cracks. Then run a clean rag along the edge, trying not to disturb what you've just perfectly done but to simply clean up anything you may have missed.

The "Tape procedure"...you may have to repeat this 5 or 6 times over the period of the day, but it's well worth doing once you've perfected it.

Undercoated

Well after 4 or 5 hours on the "GUN", the undercoat is done.

My best Spray-gun decided to pack it in, so its either time for some new seals or some minor teaks. Hope its the latter.

Pulled out my 2nd best gun & it went like a dream...........after an hour of frustration with the faulty one.

Used about 12 litres of undercoat....but thank god it's done.

I'll let the undercoat sit for a couple of days before I give it a scuff with 180 grit, then I'll be back on the gun next week.

There's a few "Gaps" that I've missed here & there, so I'll get another tube of Sikaflex & weave some magic.

Now it's time to think about colours.....& where.

I'm possibly using "White" on the "Framed" areas....but definitely dark GREY & BLACK on the walls. IDEAS are welcomed.

The bar I'm thinking BLACK, along with the front screen wall...so maybe grey on the side walls with the odd black insert.

Next level craftsmanship- this is an aspirational thread for me. Your pointers and tips (like sealing gaps) are quite helpful.

Thanks to those who posted those words of encouragement. Much appreciated ;-)

It's back to work tomorrow after taking a week off so It'll be back to weekend theatre work again......but I'll get there.

Like I said in another post, the bar & front wall will be painted black so I've been working on some "Colour Designs" (Color Designs, if you're on the other side of the global) for the 2 sidewalls. The wife wants some input which is white on the Cornice & skirting boards so I can live with that if it keeps the peace lol.

Here are some ideas & I'm leaning towards NUMBER 1.

Thoughts anyone?

That's even better! Have you tried it with the colors reversed? Seems black on the bottom might anchor it better and not seem top heavy

Hi BRAZ......Yes, I've tried multiple combinations (as shown below) & I keep coming back to the one framed in red.

I think the "Top Black Walls", that surround & highlight the Top French Wall Panels, look best...especially when the front wall & Bar are going totally black.

I could be wrong but I've looked at these pictures for the last 5 or so weeks & I keep coming back to by original pick in red.

On Sunday I sprayed the walls (where required) in grey. Well I must say.....I haven't lost-it. It's the first time I've picked up a spray gun for top-coat in 20 years. No "RUNS" & the paint laid down like a mirror.

Today (Monday) I sprayed the bar in black. I did get a couple of slight "SLAGS" in the primer from the week before which I missed when sanding (that's why you should always put down a "Guide-coat" when sanding)...so I'll have to give it a quick nip this weekend. I'll then install the shelves on the wall which I also painted black today (sorry forgot to take picture) & then give the bar one more coat of black.

Looks good! Are you spraying with an airless or an HVLP? I've got both types but have yet to use them but will be shooting with the airless (with latex) when I repaint my foyer.

I used HVLP. Why? Because of all the angles & curves in my handy-work. By doing this I can control the paint flow better & get into all those hard to get at areas, with a better, more even coverage.

Airless-Guns are great on walls with no features, but in my case, HVLP was the much-preferred option......especially knowing my experience with them in my earlier years in the automotive industry.

Yes it took slightly longer & I had to fill up the pot probably a dozen times, but you still have to wait "In-between-coats" for them to "Flash-Off (dry), so there's not much difference......& the end results speak for themselves.

What you do to get a great finish WITHOUT-PAINT-RUNS is go around all the hard to get at areas first. In other words, leave all the easy bits to last because the're the surfaces you'll see all the time.

So put ONE, I stress ONE coat of paint on all those angled, framed areas. Go right around the room and by the time you come back to the start, the paint would have "Flashed-Off"....making it ready to paint the whole walls. Follow your "Wet-Edge"....DON"T double-up & everything will be SWEET.

For best results use a "TACK-RAG". A Tack-Rag is a sticky-cloth that you wipe down on all the walls, JUST before your ready to paint. Doing this procedure will eliminate all dust particles that you can't see but notice later STANDING-UP in finished paint jobs.

Cheers, Steve

On the weekend I went around (for the 3rd time) and taped up everything that was not going to be painted black.

Got the spray-gun out the next day & laid down the black.

I still need to finish off the double-doors & the white edging on the walls.

Another 2 weekends off painting to go.

I'll put some more pictures up when I get a chance.

Cheers PK.

I'm probably going to paint "LESS white", on some of the trimmed areas as I've explained before in previous posts.

Once you've applied something, it always looks different in real-life...so I'm always happy to review & change my plans, as I go.

Glad I'm not building a house from scratch as it would probably cost me double by the time its finished.

Today I painted the top edge of the walls shown in the first photo, GREY.
Put a Smart-TV in the bar.
Moved all the RGB-LED Controllers behind the TV into the recessed "Wall-Cavity".
Now they're all hidden and I have easy access if needed thanks to the "TV mounting bracket" that extend outwards by half a metre.

I also got some mirrors measured up for the bar & brought some tiles from my mate's shop. I showed him my Bar plans, told him what colours I'd be using & mirrors....& then asked him off the top of my head, "What tiles would you use"??? In sixty seconds the perception that I had stamped in my head for the bar were erased immediately. I'll show you these amazing tiles he sold me once they're mounted on the walls. I liked them so much that I rang him back when I got home & ordered another couple of boxes to place on the floor.

& lastly, I got quote for a curtain & 1 pull-down-blind (full sun blockout) for the side window.

Cheers, Ronny. The key is (especially when it's your place & your time) if you get bored towards the end of the days work, walk away from it.....sit down, have a beer & think about tomorrows assault on the room.

You'll then focus on what SHOULD be done & you'll get it right with no regrets.

OK....Over the weekend I experimented with painting the FRAMES.

I first painted one frame WHITE.......Stood back & said a big NO.

I then painted the Top Frames in a colour I tinted myself using the black I used on the walls, combined with a table-spoon of white (you could say) to lighten it. I didn't mind it but I still wasn't happy.

I painted the Bottom Frames in a colour I once again tinted myself using the grey I used on the walls & a table-spoon of white. I stood back & said to myself....YOU'VE NAILED IT. So I then painted the Top Frames from black to that same grey. BINGO. I then painted the Bottom-Sill-Panels grey to suit.
