Well, I've never been very proud of its appearance. When we moved into the house, half the basement was finished, and the finished part is roughly 20x11x7. I just put my audio gear down there with a couch, and while it sounded good, the looks were more than dated. After a while, I ended up adding a screen and projector, though sound was and remains primary for me. Over time, the shelving I had there got filled with the kids old toys and stuffed animals, but when the tunes were going, or the lights were out and a movie playing, the looks didn't matter much... Here are a couple of pix of my space as it was... Note the lovely chair-rail, green & white striped wallpaper, and the off white, beach stone, 12x12 vinyl tile by Barry, on Flickr by Barry, on Flickr How it looks after this past weekend... by Barry, on Flickr I'm going to paint the walls and ceiling a dark gray, and will be putting down some dark gray wood-look vinyl flooring. Also getting rid of the track light and one 6x24 recessed fluorescent, replacing those with soffit style lighting down both walls. I'll post some progress pix as I go, and the finished product too.
