Hand painted 5 1/2 foot ceiling wreath in my living room.


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.
