Dtel,

Yes those are Klipsch Heresy speakers, they really kick ass in that room. I also, have a sub to give it a little more bottom end.

Here is some of the stuff I took out of this room before the re-do






I know they really do sound good especially with a sub, have a collection of Klipsch myself, Heresy's are going in my hut.

You have a great collection of stuff to work with and I love the way your rooms came out, very nice.

What is that on the walls of the music room, looks like cloth, somewhat of a diamond pattern, whatever it is it looks great, it makes the whole room especially with all the wood.

Is that a Tiki bench in the rubble...or is it a massive Mai Tai cocktail table?

It's a Tiki Bench from Trader Vic's and a 1950's Hydroplane.

Also a few 1930's outboard motors. The walls inside have a couple of Tapa's and old redwood fence boards

HELP AND ADVISE!

I've got these cheap hollow doors. Freaking hate them as they are.

Any ideas on how to deal with them?

What a gorgeous space! Love, love, love it.

Re: the doors -- my prescription is to paint the doors dark brown, get some loose woven straw/grass matting (got mine at Oceanic Arts), use a spray stain on it to give it some age and depth, and then decoupage it onto the door with Mod-Podge and a roller. Then you've got a nice, simple backdrop, you can either leave them as-is, or build onto them from there.

I keep thinking it would be cool to trick them out to look like old doors, maybe Dutch doors (I'm a sucker for a Dutch door), but then you might as well just go to a reclamation place and get some actual old doors, eh?

Hi Longboard,

About those hollow doors. Here's a pic of the same type of door I tricked up with a bit of island design. I repeated the design in reverse color along an adjacent window ledge. Works for me.

I'll second Humu's grass matting suggestion, and suggest using a cheap old-school straw beach mat or burlap underneath and smaller pieces of a more expensive matting layered above it.

You can get a straw beach mat for under 5 bucks, and enough cheap burlap to cover a whole wall for under $50.

[EDIT] I was just thinking, if you are looking for a more Mid-Century Modern look and less Exotic/Tiki door you can paint them Chinese Lacquer Red or Sea Foam Green. Tape off an area first and paint it with an accent color like Cream, let it dry, cover it with painters' tape and then paint the door with the primary color.



Or you could go to your nearest architectural salvage and just buy a couple doors that say "Mid-Century Modern" to you.
