Ceiling Medallion into Wall Decor: A Nap Time Project by Megan

Here at our house we savor nap time. It's our time to run around and get some projects done in the three hours we don't have to chase a toddler around.  I did this project in about thirty total minutes from start to finish. It's a beautiful afternoon here in Maryland, so it was nice to be outside doing something. Rob and his friend are currently on the other side of the house ripping up our deck and replacing it. I think I got the better deal project wise during this nap time.


I have seen a lot of projects involving ceiling medallions.  I was inspired by a few pins I have found on Pinterest, and in this post by Furniture Clue they share many interesting ideas.



At an after the winter holidays sale at the Home Depot they had some on clearance.  I snagged this one for $10 bucks.  I am working on the wall behind our bed in our master bedroom. It always seems to me that we never really think about that room because it is where we collapse after working on projects for every other room. 




First I spray painted it using Catalina Mist by Krylon. Any excuse to get outside during nap time is fine by me. I already had the spray paint from a previous project, so I was happy to have a color that worked for the room.





Then I used a chalkboard circle that I found at Michael's for a $1.50.  The best part was that it had a yarn piece on it for hanging, which helped me hang it on the wall later on.






Using a glue gun I adhered the chalkboard circle to the back of the medallion.



I then took it to our room. We are planning on painting this wall...it's on the master to do list. We will see when that happens.  Anyways, we did this headboard project a few months back and the space above looked empty. I am now in search of something to place on either side of the medallion. Possibly two more medallions in a different color. If you have any ideas...suggestions are appreciated. 


Total Cost for the project $11.50. Thanks for stopping by.
