New Feature

This room used to have floor to ceiling mirrors lining two walls, so instead of removing the mirrors (dangerous) my husband studded over them and sheetrock was added. The ceiling trim is my favorite- DH installed rope lighting on a dimmer switch for ambient lighting on the ceiling during movie nights. Very cool feature and very easy to create with a little trim and some paint. You can see more photos here at my blog:

  • Surround sound and closer view of trim
  • Finished theater room in basement
  • Basement room "before" pic with mirrors- these all got sheetrocked over instead of removing.

    @SheilaG- too funny! Good to see you over here! :)

    @KMS- Yes, the original owners built it as a workout room. We are more couch potatoes so we turned it into a theater/ game
