When my boys were little I had painted their ceiling as a sky and then painted a border of kites around the room. It served its purpose for several years, but as with most decor, it began to feel outdated. So after 13 years and before the arrival of our last one I decided to repaint. Well, that was 8 years ago, but I still enjoy the ceiling. For awhile, Buzz Lightyear flew across the night sky, but now it just has the glow-in-the-dark stars. The crown molding and circular molding was painted using various shades of cream, beige, and gray. I drew the circle on the ceiling by attaching a string with a pencil to the fan which was centered in the room. One trick I discovered while painting the circular trim is that electrician's tape worked awesome for masking it off. There is enough stretch to it that it smoothly formed the shape of the circle. The only dark blue paint I had at the time had a gloss finish, but I kind of like the sheen that it gave the night sky. So even though it rains quite a bit here in Oregon, I can always lay in bed and have a great view without even a drop falling on me!
