Makeover Monday - Theatre Room

Welcome back to another edition of Makeover Monday! This week we’re talking about our “theatre room” in our basement. No, we are not rich -we are very thrifty/good at finding deals and we are very lucky to have great friends and family that were so willing to help us finish our basement. Last winter, Chris, my dad, me and some very nice friends/family spent a LOT of time and hard work finishing our basement. It’s crazy for me to look back at the pictures to see where we started. I’m breaking the basement up into different rooms (so I have more posts and not 1 huge/long post that people struggle to get through)

Here is what the basement moved in. Please excuse the boxes/crap everywhere!
View into theatre room from the future hallway

View if I was standing in the theatre room and looking into future bathroom/storage

The steps down into the basement - future hallway and bathroom
Looking straight ahead to where the screen will be

Dad and Chris built the wall that separates the bathroom and the living room

Built doorway that leads into future (and current) storage room

Looking straight ahead is where the screen will be. Wire has been run for the future electrical

Sheetrock was put up.

Wall that separates the bathroom and living room. Chris installed all of the trim. The door on the left is the door to our storage room

Ahead is the wall where the screen will be hung

Door into the storage room

Another shot of the wall separating the bathrrom. I don't know what all of the spots on the pictures are. Lighting was not good at this point

We put the screen up!

Shot of the wall with the windows and sliding glass door

We finally got our carpet and furniture! Happy Day! No ceiling or overhead lighting yet

Our compromise for the surround sound speakers - put them in the ceiling! I hated the idea of huge box speakers sticking out from the wall when you entered the room

And now for the Finished Product!!

View from the hallway into the theatre room. Running on the treadmill watching 120" screen isn't so bad ;)

View from where the treadmill is. That's the storage room in the corner

View from where the storage room door is. LOVE our sectional. It's amazing for sleeping watching movies/TV

View from the corner. Storage room door on the left, my bed the chaise and the hallway (tan color on the right)

View of the screen straight on
All in all I could not be happier with how it turned out. We are so lucky to know people in the trades. We would not have been able to afford to do this without knowing who we know. My husband did such a great job with everything. There were a LOT of times I think he wanted to give up, but he kept going and now we have a great 3rd level of our house to hang out in. We started our project in October 2010 and finished at the beginning of April 2011. 

Happy Monday, hope everyone had a great weekend!
