Look!: A Finger-Textured Ceiling

We've visited this local pub a number of times but "the band room" has always been dark and the focus has been on the stage.

This weekend, we had the chance to visit this establishment in the daylight hours and one of the first things we noticed was the ceiling. The beams caught our eye but we were even more entranced with the texture. Sure enough, those are finger marks in the plaster and we've got to imagine that was a ton of fun to create.

Jump down to see why we love a textured wall (or ceiling) so very much...

Our home is in the ground level of an 100+ year old building so we've had to accommodate our share of wall nicks, cracks, and gouges. Once we realized that our walls will never be perfectly prim and straight, we decided to work with our strengths and play up the texture.

The finger-induced ceiling texture at Schubas Tavern is definitely extreme whereas our own bathroom is an example of minor texture.

We're curious, do you aesthetically value texture or is it all just a big cover-up?
