UPDATED PICS IN THIS POST
Last year I posted my Living Room system in this very sub-forum (HERE) but never got around to posting my newly renovated Theatre Room. As the Living Room has changed somewhat, Ive decided to start a new thread. I kept a running blog of my HT renovation (linked on my signature) for anyone interested. Anyway enough talk, here's the systems - I'll start with the Theatre first:-

Absolutely fantastic! I like the DIY wall panels. Are they faux suede? Also, you mentioned the footstools, are they DIY aswell?

Hi Mitsi,
Yes it is, bought from a local fabric store. I did a blow-by-blow log of their construction on my blog if interested. The foot stools were actually bought from a local store and perfectly match the room and an EXACT match for the couch!

I've got one very similiar and I'll be passing by the guy's store today. I'll pop in and see if he's got a website/catalogue.

Thanks for all the comments guys. Not sure if I mentioned it but I do plan on taking the HD media (i.e discs and cases) out of the room entirely as I do prefer a much cleaner look. I will probably buy 2 or 3 18" figures to pad out the shelf in the room.

For those of you having issue with getting the images to load, it seems my ISP tells me one of my photos was hit by the same IP 60,000 times yesterday, hence the issue (out of bandwidth). I do plan on copying all these photos over to my photobucket or facebook pages to make it easier for me to consolidate. Apologies to everyone else having issues over the weekend - it should be back to normal by Monday when they find the problem IP.
