Reach for the sky

Since I have a polka-dot floor waiting to be installed, I have given considerable thought on what I'd have to do to the ceiling. Why not a reflecting polka-dot pattern. Oh-ho, it was fun..... We used a roofing (with tar) brush for a large circle, a medium paint brush and then a small paint brush. My husband stuccoed the spackle, mixed with ceiling paint, on the ceiling just a few feet from me, I was in charge of the circles. It was coming out so cute! The photo really doesn't pick up the light and how it plays with the shadows, and of course, the mixture is still drying when we took the photos.
I had my husband take 2 breaks with me, it was hard holding our arms over our heads and it was hot weather, whew! Plus I wanted to get some space between him and I, I swear he was aiming that dropping spackle at me!


We are soooo tickled how this looks! C&G Design

Oh, Dawn, you all have been so busy! I'm trying to envision where this studio is located...the attic? It has such wonderful height and a lovely window. I'm half through my morning coffee and caught up. Can't wait to see the studio finished. I DO love the black polka dot flooring.
