Project Home Rennovation: Painting Architecturally Detailed Ceilings with A Little Help From a Friend.

Last week was crazy busy for me in the home renno . department.  I took on the challenge of painting our entire main level, which includes the front room we use as a living room & my office (seen below), the kitchen, and some of the stairwell.

Look carefully at the photo below and see if you can spot my helper...




Of course, always at my side and in the middle of things, Lucy found the ONLY plastic-less spot in the room to cozy up and supervise.


She moved on when I did, and here you can see her supervising my ceiling work in the kitchen from atop the fridge.


Progress Report: As of now, I'm totally finished painting.  Wahoo!  As you can see- it was quite a challenge doing our highly architecturally detailed ceilings.

You see, the builders painted the ceilings to match the walls- this creamy yellowy color.  I'm actually glad they did, because while it's no joke painting EVERY ceiling in the house along with the room, it gave us the inspiration to be creative with tone and shade here.

More photos of the actual finished spaces to come, and you'll get to see the ceiling in more detail:)

Awesome ceiling!

But I seem to recall the ceiling painting was always a part they'd fast forward through on DIY/HGTV remodel shows...

This ceiling is amazing! What a lot for work with all the corners. It must have taken hours. Lucy is so good just supervising. My Emmett would be all up in my business!
