As part of the overall decor theme in my bedroom, this ceiling treatment, whilst not being unique, does add immeasurably to the overall ambience. First I stuck and screwed battening onto the ceiling to create a window framed ceiling effect The distance between the East / West and North / South battens was measured to be the exact width of the wallpaper used. By doing this you are able to paste and stick

Starfield wallpaper in situ ,battens yet to be painted. I did not do this project in the correct sequence, it should have been
(1) Stick and screw fix battens to ceiling,
(2) Paint battens,
(3) Stick up wallpaper,
(4) Further embellish starry night sky
(5) Look up at what you've done and think what a clever little bunny you are!
