Oh, How I Love Ceiling Medallions!

I'm totally in love with ceiling medallions. I love how classy they can make any light fixture look! I initially like clean medallions with little embellishment, but have since seen the error of my ways!

I mean look at some of these clever ideas:

Using a frame and sheets of music.

Using plaster to design your own.

Bling! Nuff said. Via I Lite 4 U

A sassy medallian with feathers and beads for a little girl's room!
Via Purple Cactus Studios

And I freaking LOVE this one!!! Using medallions as wall art! What an easy DIY project that I think I'll need to do if I ever get more space (i.e. bigger house!).

What do you think? Are you with me on this one??? Do you love ceiling medallions, too?

We are in the process of a remodel and used ceiling medallions for the first time. I, like you, went for the simplest design. Maybe after I use them a little more I will move on to more creative ways. I really like the sheet music one!

I love the yellow ones on the wall. I have that picture saved in my DIY file for a rainy day.

oh boy! What a great idea to put them on the wall... that may be what my big empty wall in my entry needs!
Thanks for the idea!

I never thought of putting them on the wall like that!

Putting them on the wall? That's one of those slap-yourself-on-the-head kind of ideas, huh? Like "why didn't I think of that?" So clever!

I'm hosting an Uppercase Living giveaway, so cruise on over!

Thanks for finding them on the wall. I like the picture frame too. It would be great if you could do velcro up there and switch them for the season, the mood, or the party.

What a great idea to display them as art!

I do like medallions! I've never seen any second-hand. I only see them at Home Depot/Lowe's.

These are so creative. I actually saw ceiling medallions at home depot yesterday and had to go past them to address more critical needs in my house.

Ceiling Medallions really do amp up a room. I hate that one with the pink boa... is hate too strong a word... nope.

Mrs. Limestone said...

I love them too. And considering their impact, they are dirt cheap.

Not that I can think of much else to do with them but Im shocked they don't show up in loads of other DIY projects.
