When your room is screaming for a makeover, it’s hard to think of anything else. But life always seems to be too busy to find time to slap on a new coat of paint. First there’s the hassle of getting the supplies, then you have to move your furniture and tape off the moulding. And that’s before you start applying the layers of primer and paint. Well, did you know there’s a faster way to refresh the color of your space with just one wall? Yes, the ceiling! How about just painting what’s above a bold, statement color? Bet ya didn’t think of that one before. Read on for 20 inspiring painted ceilings that’ll have you raising the roof!
