Ceiling is believing!

Ceiling is believing!
Pam looked up one day and noticed she had a boring ceiling.  I bet 99% of us could look up and say the same thing.  Yup, I just looked up at mine and noticed that I haven’t changed my vent filter for waaaaay too long.  So, that was less boring than I expected, and also super gross.  Apparently, we should look at our ceilings more often.
So Pam decided a nailhead trim pattern would be just the ticket to Spruce-it-upville.  All it took was about $65 worth of supplies and and endless supply of patience.  And probably some neck rubs after the whole thing was over!  Fantastic!  Check it out on her blog Simple Details.

Gemma also had a boring ceiling on her hands … or head … or whatever.  She was inspired to try a herringbone pattern and made the whole process look easy, even for those of us who may be challenged by math … (or counting) … (or painter’s tape). It’s the perfect punch of interest for this little space.  I think I have ceiling envy.  See more on her website The Sweetest Digs.

    People blow me away – I have tried to use nailhead trim on furniture and can’t even do it then – but that table yesterday – and the ceiling today?

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – I LOOOOOOVE your blog. You are consistently hilarious and the projects are great. But mostly because you are so darned funny. Thanks for being the blog highlight of my day.

    🙂 Heidi

    Beautiful, just too much work for me. I still haven’t finished painting my baseboards let alone doing something like that to my ceiling! I’m like Heidi, you are just too funny, love the blog so much so, that I won’t “share” or “pin” anything, cause I don’t want anyone else finding out about it. It’s mine, mine, mine…and I don’t want to share all those ideas. (Whispering….please don’t post the non family friendly words, my DD loves this blog, and it just takes away from your wonderful ability to say things hilariously and nicely, IMHO)

    Aww, thank you so much, Lindsey! Gemma’s herringbone is so cool, off to check it out! 🙂

    Those gray stripes are amazing. Even though I knew it was an optical illusion, I still wondered for a second how the ceiling lamp could be mounted on a peaked surface.
