With the nice weather this weekend (maybe our last until spring) I had to do some household chores so I didn't get a ton of time to work on the theater but I did get a few things done.
Yesterday I took advantage of the weather and got the first coat of primer on the columns. Then today I put on a second coat and finally sprayed them black.
Then I sprayed the mounting screws so that I can get the columns mounted this week. If you put a piece of plastic between the screwdriver tip and the screw you can get them in with out mucking up the finish.
FWIW I used Jeff Lewis Knight paint from HD, it was special order. I used no gloss on the soffit and semi gloss on the columns. The no gloss just chalks up so bad I knew my OCD would go off the charts if I used it anywhere things would get touched. Very happy with how they turned out.
I also got all the doors trimmed in the main basement last week.
Finally I have proved in my concept for the black light that will rise out of the stage. Still need to final wire and mount everything in a project box but it works great through my Insteon hub
Need to nail down the mounting in the riser as well but now that I know it will work I can start to work on finishing up the riser.
When putting sand in the stage what is the best way to deal with the plastic? do you just lay it in each void and poor the sand in? Do you seal the top? I will be mixing in sawdust to help with moisture any specifics around that or just mix it in as you go?
As always thanks for the help!!
