Painted Ceiling

We like to treat every room in our house like a gem, so recently we decided our little hallway should have a painted pattern on the ceiling.  There is a stairway, two bedroom doors, a bathroom door and a large opening into the living room in this space and the walls are a medium shade of aqua.  We chose a soft, light aqua and orange to coordinate with the living room.

Marking and taping off the design was the most difficult.  After that it was just a matter of filling in the spaces with paint.  A word to the wise, you should peel the tape off while the paint is still wet to insure a clean line that doesn't pull off more of the paint than is desirable.

We finished off the project with a retro looking light that has an edison bulb.  I think the final piece of the puzzle will be adding crown moldings to add some nice detail to this little space!  I really enjoy seeing the pattern as I climb the stairs from the lower level.
