All the overhead lighting in my apartment is either recessed or attached to an ugly fan, but I really wish I had a ceiling medallion or two — or just a place to use this stencil.
To me, ceiling medallions are one of the best, classiest things about older buildings, and they look great with traditional or more modern décor. To get the look with this stencil, you would need a ladder and an afternoon, but it's not a bad alternative to buying and installing an actual medallion.
Cutting Edge Stencils' ceiling medallion pattern costs $54.95. The husband and wife company sells a range of styles, and they also have a helpful guide to stenciling.
