Reno's Extreme

Recommended Posts

so I'm talkin to a guy I know about what I was working on, with the stone wall,ledgestone ect ect.....he says have you bought it yet?, I say no not yet.....he says he knows a guy that just finished building a house that has a bunch in his garage and was talking about selling it. I got his number......retailed for $32 a square foot buddy had just over 125 sqft. says give me $300.........umm duh, couldn't pay for it fast enough. get it home and really don't care for the light grey redish colours so I took my trusty flat black spray paint out. and well it turned out to look exactly like the black ones in the store.....


first thing  I made a border for a guide then added extra drywall screws for the added weight....

got a good start today, painted about 40 pieces and installed a few on the wall.....

Ah you went with the full coverage on the brick. Sounded almost as if you were just going to give it more of a light coat of paint or something. Looks nice.

ya wife didn't like the rusty look from the grey and rust combo so it was only fitting to go completely black. the livingroom colours will be in the grey/dark silver family when complete so it will all tie in together. here is the next livingroom project. 

 We wanted to add some build-ins, our livingroom is 14ft x 19.5 so we can afford to lose approx. 12 to 14 inches off one end for build-ins. It will still be 14ft x 18ish ft. while thinking of different ways to do this we were inspired by the new remake of Magnum PI there was a scene where a lady is sitting at here desk and the build-ins were behind her. My wife caught this and wanted a closer look. so I figured to lay it out to see how it would look. I would be building a 14ish by 14ish square near end of wall I would be clading it with ledgestone the same as the media wall kinda like they have with stone. However because of the nature of the square I don't want people think it is a chimney going up that wall so unlike the TV show scene I will be cladding the square but will incorperate 6 shelfs part way up from floor and part way down from ceiling. They have a sliding ladder which we will not include, I will build the framing and drywall it all and then wood shelves between the frames kinda like they have. the yellow is just my lay-out for measurements to make sure everything will fit properly.
