This started as a simple project and eventually ended up throughout the basement.
The glass block at the candy counter was existing, holding a 200+ gallon fishtank and the room behind it was a storage closet.

Wow – I’m envious of the room and the space to stretch out. Looks like a lot of relaxing time in your future! Great job.

This is a beautiful media room. I am beginning to get an appreciation for your style. I like the design on the entertainment center. As a wood junkie I have always felt that you can’t put too much wood into a house. I see nothing here to make me want to change that philosophy. This is beautiful.

That’s a great setup. Nice job! My theater room has to dual as a play room so it’s somewhat less elegant. I quite like this one.

I must be missing something… I can’t seem to find the “small” part of the job as the thread name says.
Great work though!!!

Can you show pics of how you managed the components?

I love it! If only money truly grew on trees then I might be able to afford the same for my basement. I love the degisn, layout and small kitchen area with even places to eat. Kids are extremely messy. I also love the movie posters. Excellent ideas. I dream of one day putting one in my basement, but not one this nice. I don’t think my son would appeciate it if I invested his college fund in an entertainment area. Keep up the awesome work. THanks for posting/sharing your projects.
