Restoration of an old plafond

Very often during the repair of money for such trifles as a new lamp simply does not remain. Therefore, today we will try to transform the old ceiling so that it fits well with the updated interior. Three walls in the room are covered with plain wallpaper, and the central wall - with fights with a pattern. We will be guided by it during the restoration of our lamp. For work we will need: a cover, scissors, PVA glue, water-color paints or gouache, a brush, wallpaper pieces, colorless varnish in a can, remnants of wallpaper.
1. Wash and wipe the ceiling dry, ridding it of accumulated dust and dirt.

2. From the remnants of the wallpaper, which we used for pasting the central wall, we cut out the fragments we liked. You can use any other fragments or drawing that you liked. In addition, if you want the main background not to be white, but to have a different color, then you must first repaint it in the desired color.This can be done easily using the paint in cans.

9. We cover our ceiling with a colorless varnish. Note that when the ceiling is heated, at first the varnish can give an unpleasant smell. Therefore, I recommend to air the rooms well in the first days and not close the window.
