Ceiling Medallions

I love the look of these ornate ceiling medallions used as wall art! Ceiling medallions used to be made of plaster, but are now most commonly formed of urethane, so they are extremely lightweight and easy to hang. Most come already primed, and will take a coat of paint quite well. I'd love to see a grouping in various shades of pink! It would also be great to use one with a large center opening and have a mirror cut to fit. You can find these medallions at your local big-box hardware store, though their selection may be limited. I've discovered a fantastic online retailer, The Architectural Depot. They have a huge variety of ceiling medallions, ranging in size from 4 inches to over 70 inches, and prices start at around $8! You can check out their selection here. I really can't wait to have an excuse to try these out!
