When we moved to our house in 1999, our basement had a home theatre in it. It wasn't a deal-maker or anything but we used it. Somehow, the projector was taken down and the room became a dumping spot for furniture and the influx of my mother-in-law's move.
Ross is the one that pushed for turning it back to a TV room...and I'm so glad he did. We cleared out the room, pulled up the nasty carpet, and got to work. The room is nothing like the rest of our house. It's very guy-ish but not in a goofy way (I didn't completely ignore everyone's input but sometimes you just have to say "no freakin' way" and "trust me" and "Ok, but only one red wall" and "really? an 80-inch TV?").
There's furniture, a plank wall, a lovely red paint color, a vintage sign, artwork, and a galvanized pipe bar table to share; plan to squeeze it all into two more posts this week.
