Fabric Ceiling

by JenniferJangles June 26, 2012

Still working on the studios. The ceiling in the design studio doesn't exist. The previous owners of the house left us all of the parts to do a hung ceiling. The problem is that there are pipes that hang lower in some places than others. If we did put in a ceiling it would end up being pretty low. Neither of us wanted that since the room is already small. I decided I would try a fabric ceiling, why not, there was nothing to loose. And it turns out, I am pretty happy with the results.

In my theme to re-use. These are the walls of my quilt market booth from last month. I started with these and stapled them on each side of the wall to cover things.

Once all the white curtains had been stapled up I went back in with fun fabrics I already had. I had some sari-like fabric, some madras, and some glittery tulle. I used the staple gun to attach the fabric to each side.
I just kept attaching strips until all of the ceiling was covered. There is a light fixture in the middle of the room. I cut a hole in the fabric where it was. Then I got one of those ceiling fan medallions to bolt into the rafters. This would keep all of the fabric a safe distance from the bulb.

While I was at the hardware store I found a screw in socket that can take two bulbs so I doubled my light for about 2.00!

I also added some flags to the ceiling for fun.

See you soon,
