    How I built my Domain. :)

    [​IMG]
    Remove everything!

    [​IMG]
    Place in a very organized manner. Humm....

    [​IMG]
    Make sure that cable modem and wireless access point don't get unplugged.
    (you just have to have Internet at night when you are resting up) :)

    [​IMG]
    Remove that ugly window.

    [​IMG]
    Re-frame for new windows and air-conditioner. Add your Cat 5 wires now.

    [​IMG]
    Make that small door opening bigger.
    I never want to have to take all that computer desk apart in small pieces again. :eeek:

    [​IMG]
    Add windows and enjoy view.
    Until wife walks in and says, "now get back to work". :grr:
    She really is not that way. She was big inspiration to me during this project. :idea:

    [​IMG]
    Sheetrock.

    [​IMG]
    Mud.

    [​IMG]
    Add recess lighting. Think about your desk locations first. 5 added here.

    [​IMG]
    Prime and paint.

    [​IMG]
    Bring everything back in. First paint everything you can to match your decor.
    Black/Gray/Silver will do for me.

    [​IMG]
    Cable Modem after being pulled apart and painted.

    [​IMG]
    APC's before and after.

    [​IMG]
    Done!

    [​IMG]
    Now I can rest for a few months until my wife want to do another room. Hey, more computers then. :hehe:

    Sorry about the long download. I am sure they would not like to know I painted their cable modem either. But unless it goes bad, no one will know the difference.

    I sure got a good laugh about the bricks. :hehe:

    MMMM....purdy!

    Loving the manly peach color :D
    I take it that color was the wife's choice?
    You should have painted it to match your system :lol:

    Seriously though, it looks very nice...much better than before. You should have done something cool since you were ripping the walls apart. Like build a panel that slides up and behind is a big plasma tv! :clap:

    You should have constructed the floor out of plexiglass with a couple dozen cathodes below :clap:. Then you could roll around on that chair like crazy. :hehe:

    By the way, that's a very nice setup you have going. I wish I had a nice big desk like that with two LCDs, two PCs, and a laptop :(.


    P.S. I own my modem, so I can do whatever I want to it :p :dremel:

    Thank you for the compliments. It was the wife's idea on the colors, plants, and little green fella. :blush:

    I never thought about modding the room. That's not a bad idea. To tired now. Next year.

    I like the :dremel: next to your statement that you own your cable modem. I got a good smile from that.

    The room looks nice :thumb: I will echo the others in saying that I'm not crazy about the color, but you can't have everything ;)

    Quit it now, I now have desk envy :worried:

    I've always wanted my room to have a wrap-around desk with some bookshelves/file drawers and a couple spaces for computers, but seeing as I'll be out of the house in not too long, it would be a little stupid to do anything now :duh: Have to wait a while I guess :idea:

    The color is not pink as it appears in the photos. It is a little darker in real life. But it was my wifes choice. One of my friends said I should have used brushed aluminum wall electrical switch plates. Humm.... not a bad idea.

    RAMeLaiR,
    By the way, how did you get the cat to match the black/gray/silver theme?

    That was a good one. Had my whole family and friends laughing. :hehe:
    Lucky for me she matches, or I would have to change the theme.


    Thanks everyone for your compliments. :)
