I tied a string to a pencil, then to the previous ceiling fan fixture and drew a 5 1/2 foot circle on the ceiling. I then painted leaves and vines using acrylic paints. Several years later we installed the medallion and vintage chandelier for it's current look.

    It took me an hour and a half. Yes it is bad on the neck, so I don't do ceilings often.

    I would like to try that--did the painting of leaves take you a long time? You must have had a very stiff neck...
