The ceiling in the entry hall is low, by painting the center white and carrying the wall paint up onto the ceiling it gives it the illusion of more height.
I did this with the help of one my very favorite products, painter's tape. It is a bit time consuming but used correctly it results in a very accurate edge.
Step # 1
Here is how the ceiling looks with the addition of the painted border, done of course with painter's tape. Nice but a little boring.
Another border, this time using metallic gold paint...now it's getting interesting.
This is so much fun to do, it is almost magical.
After the paint dries and you pull off the tape you have this lovely embellishment and I think a much more interesting ceiling.
Now that the painting is finished I am looking for the drapery fabric, the main contender so far is Norfolk Vintage Rose by Waverly. I am waiting for the sample to come so I can decide. I hope it is right because I have already picked out the most beautiful, luxurious fringe to trim the drapes. I love the details.
