Painted ceiling and new wall
We bought paint from the Oops! section at Lowes to paint the ceiling in daughter's room and the new media room. It is a light grayish white color. It is only $3.00 a gallon if you can find something you can use. The crown moldings in these two rooms are almost a foot in depth so I wanted them to stand out more. The ceilings were painted the same white so it made them look less substantial. Hubbie walled up the opening between the two rooms and is finishing the drywall. See how that wall has chair molding? It would be hard to match and make it look right so I am thinking of alternatives. This side is my daughter's room. I have a couple of ideas. First idea: to paint the wall in that section another color and with ribbon and upholstery tacks make a huge memo board with crisscrossed ribbons. Second idea: take the memo cork board pieces and cover them in different fabrics and some with the ribbon some with sewn pockets and make a huge bullitin board area. Problem is finding a lot of fabric in her colors and the cost of fabric. I have a 3rd idea also: Painting that area with a funky mod circle pattern that I saw in a magazine.
