Looking Down the Barrel

Here’s an AMAZING before and after of a barreled ceiling hallway, done by Tammy Murray of Waldwick, NJ.

What a transformation from blah to beautiful. I love this pattern AchAll103, which was created by me playing around with repeating simple architectural border design. Adobe Illustrator can be SO much fun that way!

    Looks great – now do something to the walls, they look too “painted”. This design works well on a smooth surface. Very few of my clients have a smooth ceiling – hard to work on because of the heavy textures.

    Good job!

    Stunning! It reminds me of an old conservatory.

    Wow totally amazing. I didn’t even notice the barrel in the first pic – it really showcases this architectural detail.

    I bet the client had no idea of how gorgeous that ceiling could look.
    Great choice of Modello and fabulous job.
    apologies if I’ve posted twice, the first didn’t seem to go through
