When I was a kid, I wanted to do this to my bedroom soooo badly. I suppose that as an adult (and I do use that term loosely) I still want to do this to my bedroom :lol I am in total awe!
Thank you, excellent pictures! If I ever do this again, I have a ton of different design elements I would love to change.Hey A,
I'm sure you've looked over lots of images but I found these images that might help inspire you. Note all the details around the door and walls - similar to the main screen shape you have.
Hope these help inspire!
If I'm not mistaken, didn't several of the DS hallways have the horizontal trusses you mentioned? You might be able to get the look of both DS hallway and hanger?My dilemma is this, my walls are styled after a Death Star hallway, but I wanted the illusion you were in a hangar bay looking out into space.
Yeah, I thought of both actually and was about to do that. I made a comment about it in my Kylo Ren thread, I decided against it based on 1) sound deflection, 2) comfort (I actually like to lay on the floor even as an adult to watch TV), and 3) buyer appeal should we ever want to sell. It actually looks darker than how it appears in the photos. I painted the ceiling black already, just want to add some design elements to it.The carpet is throwing me off. Have you ever thought about black linoleum? Or a high sheen black garage paint for the floor? Im with you on painting the ceiling.
Hmmm, that might work. I'll have to mess around with the idea. Thanks!If I'm not mistaken, didn't several of the DS hallways have the horizontal trusses you mentioned? You might be able to get the look of both DS hallway and hanger?
Note the ceiling:
I ended up using two sheets of 1/8" translucent white acrylic. It does get pricey, I think I spent $161 for two cut sheets.What did you end up using as light diffusers for the lighted wall panels? I had planned to use acrylic in mine until I started adding up the cost.

Trust me, I tried looking for alternatives! I thought about buying clear film and using that window frosting to spray it, I thought about using white vinyl material, even fabric, I looked at several different plastics, I even thought about nixing the light idea and just painting another piece of MDF white and mounting it behind the panel. But unfortunately this was going to look the best.You were supposed to say,"I found this great material that really does a great job and it only cost $10 for a 4x8 sheet. You can get it at your local big box store."
Did you use the sheets complete? Or did you cut it up into individual light panels to make it go farther?
