Copying is the greatest form of flattery...


And so I am pleased to flatter Bonnie at The Hopeless Romantic by copying her idea for a makeshift ceiling medallion I saw on her post here


This is the frame in the state I bought it a few years back

As much as I loved it's chippy shade of pink...Bonnie changed my mind.

I gave it a few coats of ASCP in pure white and with my cordless drill screwed it to the ceiling.

I've reached you via a comment you left somewhere and I'm so glad to have found you.
I, like you, I'm terribly passionate for white and love, love, love what you did with your frame.
BTW, your frame was gorgeous even in the before condition.
