'Princess' theme ceiling opinions?
I posted this on the Home Decorating forum as well, but hoping all of you painting 'gurus' might be able to throw some ideas my way!
Well, the time is nearing for my trip to PA to do my 6 yr old DGD's Princess room redo. I will be there for 3 weeks-leaving 8/22.
I have refurbished 7 pieces of furniture which is going to cost me a small fortune in gas, to haul up there, but gotta do it.
I've had a master plan in place since last Oct. but didn't include the ceiling. The walls will be done in a blend of cream, tan & pinkish colors to look like rock..(similar to a pink quartz or something like that). I am only doing the 'rocks' in random areas on the wall & in the corners, plus around (4) arched windows that will showcase Cinderella scenes. I bought a Jan Dressler stencil to do the mortar divisions for the stones.
I have a small chandelier that will swag to the center of the room, so would have a hard time incorporating sky/clouds & have the light make sense, relative to the walls.
Last year when I did my DGS's Hawaiian theme..I did the ceiling w/sky & clouds (OH MY ACHING NECK!) and used real bambo poles as panes on the ceiling-denoting a skylight effect, so to speak.
But, I'm in a query as to how to handle this project. Any ideas?
Sorry this was so long but it'll help set the scene of the problem.
