So the next upgrade is upon us... and it will be, a painted star ceiling! This will happen within the next week, weather permitting. (Jeff is driving after all)
Now, currently I have a flat black painted ceiling. This will be my last opportunity to change that prior to the work. Even then, we're not talking about a big change. Should I just change it to an eggshell black or maybe a dark blue? The red rope lights will be going away, or at least be unplugged temporarily. To be honest, I never used them other than for photos. I could always change the outlets up there to be insteon or something and split the two, but I think it is more likely I will just unplug them and leave them there. As anyone with a flat black ceiling can attest to, they get dirty and they get marked by almost any touch. But you can't really tell unless there is light shown directly on them. (See my projector pipe change photos when I changed out my screen) So I'm thinking either to stay black or go a dark blue, and switch to eggshell paint for ease of cleaning, and only one coat at that.
I'm working on getting a UV light order in today.
