If the Sistine Chapel was the master bedroom in an old Methodist church …

Our story so far: Our carpenter trimmed out all kinds of nooks and crannies in the old Methodist church we were turning into our home.

Eventually, a ceiling fan will be centered inside the tray ceiling.

You-Can-Call-Me-Al also trimmed out our master bedroom tray ceiling with crown molding and tin salvaged from the basement ceiling. Originally, I had hoped to show off the original tongue-and-groove wood ceiling inside the tray, but I was overruled when Tyler determined he couldn’t repair the holes in it. So we covered it in tin which added tons of historic texture. The tin looked dirty against the bright white of the ceiling so it would need to be painted, but I had just the right distressed technique to try with it.
