Adding a Modern Ceiling Accent Panel
This is such a simple project, but today I want to share my easy way of adding a modern ceiling accent panel.
Many of you all may remember this amazing DIY from the One Room Challenge when we upgraded our Master Bathroom. Today I am sharing all my tips and tricks on adding a modern ceiling accent panel to really jazz up a hallway.So I am not even going to lie, my inspiration for this application came from touring the Atlanta Southeastern Designers Show House and it was stuck in my mind ever since. However, they used a tan brown burlap ribbon and brass tacks for a more farmhouse feel and I dressed mine up with a black burlap ribbon and stainless steel tacks for a tad more modern feel. Check this out, the before and after, now do you see why I was completely obsessed with this idea?Okay so here is how I did it. First I pre-painted the inside square of the ceiling Dorian Gray from Sherwin Williams. Then we installed the primed white trim to cover the imperfect edges underneath. Now we will paint the outer ceiling and the rest of the walls. No taping required, and all clean edges. Sometimes you just need to think through your projects and have a little prior proper planning, to prevent piss poor performance! The “Seven P’s” is a motto I adopted from my friend Karen (yes her name really is Karen) many moons ago, and it still serves me well to this very day!I used a black burlap ribbon measuring 1 3/16″ wide and large jumbo sized stainless steel upholstery tacks, which were approximately 3/4″ wide.
I pre-cut the ribbon the length of each side of the panel and evenly distributed the upholstery tacks into the ceiling. No glue, not even big holes will be left, even if you decide to take it down or change it out. Honestly this concept is brillant.
