OK…so, bear with me (yes, I had to look up if it was bare/bear. Bear just seems wrong, but it’s not) here, I know I’ve talked about our ceiling already. After throwing a couple ideas around in my head, I decided on tiling our dining room ceiling with tin tiles. But then as I started reading more about it, I realized I could get the same effect from wallpaper.
You can paint the textured wallpaper any color you want. And, for $22/roll this was looking like a high impact project with a very teeny budget. We did the measurements and realized that we’d need about 3 rolls, so $66. Not bad at all!
But then I started reading about attaching pre-pasted wallpaper and things started to sound really complicated. It’s one thing to do this on a wall, but when you’re fighting gravity on a ceiling, and trying to do things on a time crunch so that the glue doesn’t dry before you get the paper on the ceiling, it seemed like a giant pain in the ass. I envisioned Sean and me covered in pre-pasted wallpaper with strained necks. So even though Sean told me I could go ahead and buy the wallpaper, I didn’t do it.
And now I’m staring at the ceiling and so sad about what could have been. But then, I started to see inspiration pictures of painted ceilings. So much easier! And still a big impact!
Maybe something metallic?
So what do you think? Should I paint our dining room ceiling? Just to give you a reminder of what our dining room looks like:
So, if you think I should, any color/pattern suggestions?
