Star Stenciled Ceiling

As you know, last week, I worked on a star stenciled ceiling for a nursery project. My client wanted the feel of Osbourne & Little's star wallpaper, without the hassle of actual wallpaper. I have to admit that I was a little nervous about the painstaking part of this project (back aches! Neck aches! Math!), but it actually wasn't bad at all. I think that I have figured out how to tackle these types of projects at this point (after my ceiling striping from a few years ago!), so things come a little quicker to me now. Live and learn, ya know!?


I made a stencil:

and got to it:

The actual stenciling part wasn't bad at all. The measuring for where the stars should go was the hard part. I made a grid on the ceiling with measuring tapes and a yardstick, and was able to place my stars precisely that way. It took me about a day and a half/two days to finish. 


in this photo, you can still see my lines:

in the works!

and, done:

  13. Love the stars on the ceiling - well done! I did a similar project but used different colors for the stars which came out great - fun and colorful but not in primary colors. Actually I found the palette of colors to use in the Color911 app which I use for all my DIY projects when I need color inspiration.
    Great job!
