I was able to run a few wires today. Unfortunately, I needed some electrical wiring for the projector. I ended up running to Home Depot to get some. I decided on 100′ of 12-2 wiring (yellow). I am running not only the projector, but also 3 more outlets that will hook up a mini fridge, my receiver and all other electronic devices. I figured I might at well run the 12-2 now, as it gives me plenty of room to upgrade to stand alone amps later down the road. 

While at Home Depot, I also decided on my color scheme. I plan to paint all the trim and ceiling in Behr Broadway (the same paint you see the wall behind the screen painted). The top of the wall will be painted a dark grey, Behr Intellectual. All paint will be the Behr Ultra Plus, which includes the primer. I’ve also been playing with the idea of putting up some wood paneling and faux columns. Of course, I have a plan that will keep costs down. I’m thinking the color stain will be Rustoleum cabernet. Here’s a mini mock up of what I am thinking. If it works, I’ll let you all know my secret to make it look nice, while staying within budget.

*The colors are not an exact match

What do you think?

*colors stayed the same, but not the wood.
