    Finally finished mudding & sanding, I put 2 coats of primer on everything and am ready to paint. Any suggestions on colors? I've been thinking about maroon for the main color, but that seems to be the color most people use. Anyone have any other ideas and suggestions?

    I don't have any suggestions on colors for you, but I did want to say your room looks pretty good so far. Nice work.[​IMG]

    What did I learn new today? Use a soffit to hide your projector!

    Thanks for the nice comments guys, I'm hoping to be completely done with the room in a couple months....hopefully, this project has been going on for almost 2 years now...off and on when I have time after work and alittle on the weekends.... As for the room size, it measures 13'-6" x 25'-0 x 7'-9"

    Jason....The hole in the soffit isn't to hide the projector, although that isn't a bad idea at all, as long as you had good ventilation.....when completed, it'll hold the center channel and have a speaker cover over it.


    Great looking setup George, screen shots look great!

    Dan,

    Here is a color idea for you. Sort of the typical maroon color, but more exciting. My walls have five different colors blended together but it does have an overall maroon effect when viewed from the center of room. The five colors were sampled from a structure fire picture.

    Here is a link to a gallery picture:

    I can't wait to see your finished theater!

    Thanks everyone,

    Great looking theater David, the color looks great!, how did you apply that?

    Neil, the equipment is a denon 3805 with the klipsch R-7 series speakers, set up for 7.1 surround. I haven't bought the subs yet, but I'm 99% sure I'll be going with a pair of SVS PC-Ultras. The dvd player is a sony dvp-ns700p, the pic looks good, but when the theaters done, I'm going to upgrade to a denon 3910. To control everything, including lights (lutron 3601), I'll be using Intellicontrol Hometheater automation system made by Niles.
    The projecter will be a Dwin transvision 3.

    The wall was painted with a 3" brush by dabbing paint to the wall with the tips of the bristles. Started with the darker colors first and progressed through to the lighter colors. (Black, dark red, light red, orange, yellow) Paint was not completely dry when applying next color. Kept the darker colors toward bottom, lighter colors near top.
    Another idea was to use lighter colors around sconces and the darker colors out near the edges of the wall sections.
