Thanks. Like I said, the colors are off a bit, so is the brightness and contrast... The room has a much "cooler" feel to it than is reflected in the pictures.

OK. So I spent a couple of hours in the basement, but only about 1 of those was in the theater. I did some painting elsewhere, as well as getting some measurements for things like tile in the bathroom, etc. So anyway, I basically got the 2nd layer of 3/4" plywood on the riser and the two layers of 3/4" plywood on the steps of the riser. This puts it to 11" tall before carpet. That should be nice for seeing over heads.

Anyway, I never got a chance to use the router to round over the lip around the riser and riser steps, and thus I didn't clean the room up for pictures. But, I promised something, so here is a picture of the riser...

OK. I am needing some help.

I am looking for something like this:


But not with the built in cover and in black.

So like this only with a "shield" to direct light downward...


I need to have light near the two steps on my riser (rope light is out due to the fact that I can't get power to the riser (easily). There are outlets on the side walls pretty much in line with where the steps are. I was going to go all light, but I need the outlet component to meet code.

No go on this:


The reason it needs to be black is that I am going with black outlets/switches and brushed nickel wall plate covers. So I need the black/nickel combo to match the rest of the room.

Ideas?

Nick, can you not just paint the faceplate black?

But I need the outlet/light to be black surrounded by a brushed nickel wallplate.

Is this one close to what you have in mind? Note that you can leave a second outlet open with this one.

Kruncher, I've seen those. They stick out a noticeable distance from the wall since they basically just plug in to the outlet.

I would just go with:

but I am afraid that the light will be distracting for people sitting in the second row.

Here is a picture of a similar brushed nickel wall plate cover to what I have to help people understand a little more of what my limitation is:



Tom, "Second box" ????
Do you mean a whole additional 1 gang outlet box? Even so, the ones in white above have their own wall plate as part of their design that can't be removed, so the box would need to be a little distance from the current outlets, and then with all of the soundproofing I did, I would be compromising the integrity of that. Crap.
