Painted the ceiling!

I tore out the ugly carpet from my Uhaul CT13 ceiling last year and put up a series of neat looking alternatives. All of them fell down, some quickly and some after a few months. Oh well!

So this time I painted a mural on the ceiling integrating the rough fiberglass and left over rock hard glue with a carpet back pattern.

This is what I came up with:

you are now definitely a one-of-one... but, it may inspire copy cats!

Looks nice Brooke

Cool idea. I wonder if there is any limit to the range of possible 'mods' to these wee trailers?

Thank you for all the positive feedback!

I used house paint. It would have been cool to use artist acrylics - but that would have been very expensive.

I went to Home Depot and bought a quart of the sky color and a sample size sun color. The other colors I mixed up from paint I already had.

I just bought the property I painted in Mouse!!!

I didn't know that I wanted a cabin in the mountains. But after I painted my ceiling I started looking for property in the Sierras.

I just purchased 5 acres with a small cabin that looks just like the scene I painted.
