Good evening every one, I am posting this about the transformation of our Florida room into my office/ trophy room! so here goes.
I started by demoing all the trim and replacing with stain grade stained to a dark mahogany! we did Wayne's coating on the interior wall.
I switched out painted French doors for similarly stained French doors! I am not a master wood craftsman so please don't be to harsh!
We replaced a white ceiling fan with a large three blade wood fan. white blinds were removed and replaced with real wood blinds! I installed sixteen two inch led cans
with gimbals so as to be directable. still a work in progress but at least functional now! added some décor and voila!

Wow! I love the woodwork- what a transformation! I'm definitely saving this thread as inspiration for my own future trophy room/office... one day!

Very well done, with an awesome result! I like especially the choice of colour for the painted walls, a calm, rustic earthy colour it seems on the pics!

Now you did create a problem for yourself. You’ll need to go hunting a bit more to fill the rest of that wall space up!

Mr Masters, you know the meaning of ambiance, very tastefully done. A Maitland Smith monkey lamp would look just right in that room.

Wow! An excellent transformation and the results are certainly a trophy room to be proud of.

BTW, it's wainscoting and not Wayne's coating (blame it on spell checker). It is a classic look and how I did my trophy room.

Hello Bruce, I think you are still in Africa?? I just sent payment to Bulls Eye Taxidermy to have 3 of my animals mounted, it has been years since I have had anything mounted. I hope Ronnie and Jimmy had a good hunt down Kimberly way. Anyway, so nice to have met you Bruce, it was wonderful meeting you and spending time with you in camp. I hope your store closure and building sale go well. Cheers, Andrew Fike

G'day Bob,
Just had a yarn with A G, and he has filled me in on how much work he puts in to such developments, referencing QuikLoad, tightening tolerances, load development, range testing. He indicated that of you wish to contact him directly he can go into details far better than I.
If you wish , contact him directly, he has given the OK for me to pass that on.
