I got the professionals to pain my ceiling in the lounge which had bare jarrah exposed beams. They sealed it with an undercoat and three coats of paint. It turned out to be very nice. It made a world of difference to the lounge, the room looks so much bigger and brighter.

I’m soooo excited! I painted my ceilings dark grey today. The same colour as the walls and I’m over the moon with it!

Many years ago, my Dad, using a very high level of skill and patience, painted a muted sunset on the dining room ceiling. It looked wonderful and as a child, I I’d sit on the floor looking up absolutely entranced. What a lovely man he was!
