Hi everyone I hope everything is going well.  The weather to start the week  in NJ has been beautiful.  Peanut and Reesses have spring fever for sure.  I can’t wait for them to have their yard!!

The house continues to move along and I finally was able to do my first project for the  house.  I LOVE ceiling medallions and they can cost a fortune if finished.  I purchased five from Architectural Depot.  They have a fantastic selection, styles and great prices.  I made everyone different starting with painting the base coat in Mannequin Cream from Benjamin Moore and used Raw Umber glaze to age each medallion.  They are aged to fit each light they will be highlighting.  Lighter ones are for lighter colored chandeliers and the dark ones are to go with darker and aged chandeliers.  Yes, I have many chandeliers and overhead lights in our new home.  I couldn’t help myself I LOVE chandeliers.  I have mentioned that before.

I needed to get these finished so the electrician can hang them while hanging all the lights.  He may not like us too much when he is finished, LOL.

Enjoy the medallions and I hope you like them.  Once the medallions are  in place and the lighting is installed I will update my photos and write another post.   More news on the house to come.
