Couldn't Wait

Okay, at this point I couldn't wait any longer. In come the chairs, speakers and projector to try out the new screen.

New Projector

Very shortly afterwards I got a new Panasonic PT-L300U projector. You can see it sitting on top of the old SharpVision projector. Greatly superior projector in a much smaller package.

The black is beginning to go onto the walls.

Paint (mountains)

Masking has been removed and work begun on painting the mountains. They are only two colors, the darkest blue and black. Here the blue is going on.

This took quite a bit of time. I had to use a small brush and fill in the edges of the moutains where they had previously been masked.

Now the black goes on. Quite a few other changes as well. The projector has been mounted and the original mask is on the screen. More on those in other galleries.

The room looks so different with the walls painted. It wasn't as obvious while working on it because if was a slow transformation. But when I go back and look at the pictures its pretty amazing what paint can do.

The bright lights of the camera flash don't do justice to how the walls look in their natural light. The camera also doesn't capture to colors quite right.

Paint (more blending)

The final blending of the black and blue of the maintains pretty much finishes the walls. (Finally!)
