We're not talking infestation here, but we seem to have up to 20 persistent fruit flies in the kitchen - regardless of the presence of fruit! Can't figure out where they're coming from! How do we get rid of them? Quick - before we start naming them!
The old, quality paneling came from my husband's great aunt's house, which is slated to be destroyed. What can I do with the plain, boring sheetrock ceiling to complement the walls, yet not darken the room any more? Oh, and the door needs something, too. It's the same white as the ceiling.

I have painted all my ceilings with many colors using glazes. First a turquoise blue, tone it
down with white and glaze, rag on another color, yellows and pinks mixed with white and glaze, rag it on, and finally white with glaze. The glaze is transparant and leaves a satin finish. It ends up looking like a beautiful sky. I don't mix throughly but leave it sort of marbly, it can be done wet on wet or dry. Gives an old world feel to the ceilings, subtle or as dramatic as you like.
