Those who know me know about our ceiling. Five years ago our ceiling fell down. You can read my previous post about it. What I did, to try and camouflage the rough ceiling beams, was to string Christmas lights and garlands. I change the garlands for each season. My favorite being the autumn leaves that look very lovely through the tiny lights.
Because the ceiling is so dark, the Christmas lights make such a difference in the lighting in the room, so we keep them on most of the time. But this means they just don’t last all that long. So, after about 4-5 months, we send 2 of our children up on stools and chairs to swap out the dead strings of lights for new ones.
And today was the day! For the spring/summer we have garlands of leaves and flowers. So, I thought I’d share some photos of our illuminated ceiling.
