Before we started on Lily's room, Doug removed the ceiling fan and the ceiling medallion that was in place. I had given thought to painting it but after a trip through Lowe's, I saw this one that I loved a lot more. The other one was more ornate and just not our style.
So here's the new one, painted and put in place with our existing fan. I'm loving it paired with the blue walls. There will be additional pink things in the room, this is just a baby step!
This isn't the exact one from her room but I think it's the identical pattern, just painted differently (all from the previous homeowner). This one is in our dining room with the wallpapered ceiling (ugh!).
So here's the medallion before I painted it.
And this might have been after one coat. I ended up painting it with two coats of Sexy Pink from Home Depot's Glidden line. I couldn't find a spray paint I liked and by buying a sample from HD, I now have paint I can use for other projects. I did light coats so that the lines wouldn't show. It was all good until some little blonde girl wanted to help me. There's one little area I didn't smooth out in time (she didn't want my help) but it's barely noticeable once it's on the 9 foot ceilings).
Similar to a photo I put on Instagram. Follow me!
And an up close photo with the bright white, new ceiling (and a really clean fan thanks to Doug!).
