How can I update a curved ceiling?
My 1940s colonial home has dormer windows. So, on the inside, the builders created a sloping curve in all of the upstairs rooms to accommodate the angle. Any suggestions on how to redo the ceilings on a budget? I'm looking for a soft look, nothing dramatic.

Love those ceilings! I would leave as is. Adds to the charm of the home. You would need major construction to change them.
do you mean you want to do the entire ceiling or do you mean you want to decorate the slanted part over the bed? Do you mean in all bedrooms or just this one? Yours is a sweet looking room. If it were mine and I wanted to decorate the angle only I would get a very full, sheer fabric, put a rod where the angle meets the ceiling and another where the angle meets the wall. Gather the full fabric on the rods (you would need to sew a channel in the fabric for these) and leave enough for a flouncy valance hanging over the bed. Make curtains to match. This is the type of fabric I mean. Here there are two separate curtain widths, the sheer fabric is very full and goes to the floor.
Oh, O.K. I get where you are headed. In our attic which has compound angles my husband installed fake beadboard when we wanted to use this space for sleeping grandchildren. Although this was inexpensive it was difficult to install 1) because of the compound cuts and because when this house was built there was no standardized spacing for studs or attic joists. 2) it was hard to nail through the material with just hand tools. 3) It was hard to work at the angles of the attic which is hip roofed. Positive things. You don't need to paint if you like white. It is easy to wash. It has kind of a cottage look. My husband is a fairly tall man and in good shape and a skilled worker.
