How to create a unique ceiling treatment with two items from your local Home Depot for under $40!
Wallpaper definitely pushes the boundaries beyond what any paint could do and I thought it would be awesome to try it out on a ceiling! We chose a medallion print by Superfresco which retails for $24.99. It covers 56 square feet so we had more than enough wallpaper to complete our project.
We found it easy to measure and pre-cut our pieces before we installed it. It’s pre-pasted so all you need is a little water and couple of minutes to let the glue activate.
Traditional trim and molding can be costly. For this project, we kept costs low by using inexpensive MDF shelves. These shelves come 5/8″ x 12″ @ 8′. For my ceiling, I needed two shelves pre-cut to 3″ strips.
I painted the pieces all the same colour as my powder room walls.

    In the first photo the wallpaper looks white, but on the ceiling it is blue. Did you paint the wallpaper somehow, or choose the same print in a blue? Thank you for your time.
