And the Oscar Goes To......

OMG!!! I can't believe it. Oh gosh, I don't have anything prepared. Okay (imagine me crying like a baby), first I would like to thank the members of the academy for this award. This is truly an honor and something I have wanted since birth, well maybe before that. To the other actors in this category, you are all so amazing!
 To my loving husband who suggested we make the ticket sign, add a 3- dimensional twist with lights rather then just basic art. I love you babe! 
To my mother who suggested I make a few toss pillows to make it a bit more comfy when she we are watching movies

To me, for being able to finish painting the room ( after I had already finished it), re- purpose the stars and paint them silver, move the other signs in from other places in the house, take down the gold tassel on the curtains and vacuum the carpet before I took the final pictures of the room.


To my gameroom, thanks for letting me take the Coca-Cola sign and put it in here

And lastly to my children who always want popcorn with extra butter during the movie and seem to spill 1/2 of it on the floor, mommy loves you now go to bed!
Now where will I keep Oscar?

Jessica @ Stay at Home-ista said...

The ticket sign is ah-mazing. Just awesome! I can't believe you let the little ones eat in there, I hope you aren't in charge of retrieving all the fallen popcorn out of the cushions and new toss pillows! I barely even let myself eat over carpet:)

It looks straight out of a magazine. Congratulations on how it turned out.

Awesome, what is the first feature and should I bring Milk Duds, Hot Tamales, Raisinettes or Junior Mints?

Well I hope you received more than one Oscar for this fabulous room!!...One for Best Director..for I know you were the greatest in directing all aspects of the theater design...and one for Best Costume, for you certainly dressed those chairs up with those gorgeous pillows...and last but not least Best Drama...because there is always drama when doing a total renovation....oh and one goes to hubby...for Best Creative Director as he certainly came up with a spectacular "ticket sign"...!! Standing ovation!!!

What a fantastic room! I really appreciate all the attention to detail the pom pom fringe on the pillow, the lights in the ticket sign, painting the stars silver...and it all paid off. I hope y'all enjoy this room for years to come.

This looks awesome. We have a media room, but so far we just use it as a second game room, but once we convert it, I'd love to create a ticket sign like yours. Congrats on a great project!

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

Laura, This is my DREAM! We are such movie buffs and my very favorite food is popcorn!!! Your home media room is absolutely fabulous!!! You thought through everything! The Ticket sign is so fun!!!
If you have a viewing of Sense And Sensibility and serve extra butter popcorn, don't be surprise if you turn on the lights after the movie and I'm in on of those so-comfy chairs!!!
Thanks for bringing the big screen to TUTORIALS TIPS AND TIDBITS... " and the Oscar for best media room goes to... TOP THIS TOP THAT!"

Pam@OurAdventuresInHomeImprovement said...

Very neat room! I love all of the details. We have the same popcorn maker in our game room and it is used often!

Enjoy your space. What a lot of fun!

WOW! You painted your room TWICE and still finished. I love the black/grey/red color scheme. Now I want extra buttery popcorn and a movie.

So impressed, Laura! It is really awesome. Pinning.

This is great and the popcorn machine adds just the right touch. I love the stars and the big red movie ticket.

Cheryl said...

Wow, Great blog! I'm so glad I found you through Tater Tots and Jello! My family would love that media room.

Linda @ it all started with paint said...

Can I just tell you how seriously jealous I am that you actually have space in your home that can be a media room ... and just a media room? In my square-foot-challenged home every room has to serve multiple functions!

I just love, love, love how you re-did this space!

:)

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

LOL you linked-up (@ Alison's) between my two posts, and I must say that I am feeling a wee bit intimidated, my friend ;P

Andrea said...

we are in the process of decorating our theatre room, so I love seeing all your great ideas!

FABBY'S LIVING said...

Oh wow, what a fabulous theater room and I'm loving all the reds in it!! I'll be showing this great place to my daughter, she want's to make one for her family. I'm at The Polo House.
