January is my month to get things done...until June comes around and then a few more things can get done...after January its busy busy busy! So, for the three years we have lived here this ceiling has been calling me so to speak..
There are several different techniques you can use...but I'm def not amazing and I needed simple so I followed this guide....I first bought dark green paint...then I put that as the base coat all over the ceiling! It was a bit scary...and I wondered WHY I had started this project!
So, my son thought I was insane...my daughter who is four told me that I was "a very good painter" thank you very much...then asked me when I was going to paint the rainbow???? Yes....clearly my children thought I had LOST my mind!
I then brought out the copper...that my friend let me use since she didn't use up all of hers...aren't friends GRAND:)
All in all this project took me around five and a half hours to complete. Yes, I did have a four year old in the mix..and thankfully the weather was almost 60 degrees and today was a holiday of course so my kids went from playing outside to watching movies and coloring...all in all I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out...and for the next couple of days...I will keep tweaking! I'm also hoping the feeling comes back into my arm and that my neck and shoulders will feel better than they do right now...oh the things we do for beautiful homes:)
Have a great day! Here are the AFTER pics! ENJOY!
