Moving right along with my room!!
Remember, I have a ceiling fan in our room, and it has to stay!
(My hubby can not live with out it!!)
So I have racked my brain trying to come up with a way to make it more appealing to my eye.
First up, a ceiling medallion.
I love them, they give great character.
A year or more ago I picked up this large ceiling medallion at RC Willey furniture store on clearance for $10.
(Yes, I plan ahead.)
I think it was meant to be a wall decoration, but that was no problem. I started by removing the sawtooth picture hanging bracket from the back. Then I needed to cut the center opening larger to accommodate the electrical box. I debated of whether or not to paint it, but in the end the green was just the wrong color, so I sprayed it white.
I wanted a little more pop, so I taped off the center and sprayed the outer and inner rings gold.
I was really getting excited when I finished.
One night we finally got around to taking down the ceiling fan and glued up the medallion.
We used clear adhesive caulk.
We rigged up a fancy tool to hold it in place while we slept.
(OK, so it was scrap wood, an old towel and a car jack.)
But it worked.
Once in place we realized the white space around the electrical box would look bad when our dark ceiling fan was installed. So I got out some craft paint and painted it black.
I think it looks great!
Now we just have to install the ceiling fan again!!!
I'll be back soon to show you what I have planned for the ceiling fan.
I'm soooo excited to show you!!!!
Thanks for stopping by.
