MASTER BEDROOM RENAISSANCE

So, by now I have become a "DIY expert" when it comes to scraping popcorn ceilings & creating a coffered look. My next project was our master bedroom. This one posed a different challenge because of the vault in the middle of the ceiling. In order to get the look I wanted, I had to straighten the 45 degree angle of the vault, to get 4 straight sides and then line up the bottom to the existing ceiling height (you'll see what I mean in the pics).

Once I created a box frame with 2" x 2" strips, I drywalled, taped & mudded. This took a significant amount of time because I had never done this type of work before and wanted it to be perfect. The coffered ceiling is similar to the ones in my previous projects, as are the wainscoting on the walls. I added 5 pot lights on a Lutron remote dimmer. This is a very handy item. I can dim the lights or turn them off, while lying in bed.

Overall, I am very happy with it and more importantly, so is my wife. Although, she never pushed me to do all the extra work, I decided to do it anyway. Hey, If you know how to, then why not do it?
