Carpet can be a total B*tch...  This is something I'd go ahead and pay an installer to do, one goof and you're screwed!!!  (I've done that, made a bad cut.)

I already put a similar carpet in the first room, so I'm not afraid  Wink

But  ...

oppps

...the color I've put on the wall is very strange. Although I applied it few weeks ago, the back part (very rough) of the carpet leaves some bad traces like this  arrow



So, I'll have to correct that after applying the carpet  Twisted

OK, so I'm fixing the carpet on all the surface ...



Remember that carpet is only ONE piece (4 meters per 7.5 meters) and it's a real pain to move/apply it on the surface without doing too many traces on the walls  Ghost Hopefully, my Dad is helping me on that part  Kiss

Done ! Let's quickly & approximately cut the carpet and let it sleep few days  arrow



Few days later... it's time to fix it on the floor.

I'll use double side scotch, like I did on the first room. First 'half' of the floor :



Done  Kiss ... now the second 'half' of the surface  arrow



Done  arrow



For this small part, I'll use a *dedicated* glue for carpet  arrow





I guess I'll put a metal plate in order to hide and do the junction between the two carpets  roll eyes

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh....  The Great smell of new carpet!!!  A little note, the smell of new carpet & the adhesive reminds me of when our arcade opened... the smell basically stayed!  I always get a flashback memory of that when I smell new carpet & the adhesive!    lol  Yes..  I'm crazy   lol

i think you should cut the blue carpet in the doorway like the red carpet then get a small rug made with a logo , like a welcome mat but with nunos lair on it or some other words, it would look very cool i think.

I believe I saw this being done by someone on the internet.. A great idea worth looking into!!  (custom floor mats)   There are also people making custom signs out of wood with a laser cutter, just provide your own .bmp images.

thanks for yours nice ideas & your support  Smiley Kiss

Ok, I will hide all the bad scratches on the walls, but I've to be careful... and protect the carpet  Tongue  arrow



Now, let's fix the baseboards (or skirting boards?) :



I'm using plastics parts with an 90 angle to protect the edges of the doorway  arrow





Done... I'm very happy of the result  Kiss



I have to increase the power of the lamps... because the dark blue color of the walls + carpet 'absorbs' a lot the light. Even with a flash, it looks very dark... but hey  Roll Eyes I'll add a lot of neons like I did for the first lair of course  Cool Kiss



This is it... except the finishing of the windows, it's done for that room. Of course I'll add decorations, neons, ...  Wink  Kiss Kiss Kiss I've also some work to finish in the first room, but I can start to bring some games in the v2  Smiley
