    I gotta stop coming up with dumb ideas.

    Sunburst ceiling panel for my house flipping project in the front entry.

    Gees, if you think that is dumb, I'd really like to see what you come up with when you think you are being brilliant!

    Beautiful!

    Cool looking panels Karl. Have to agree with Carol, if that's the dumb idea, lets see some brilliant ones.

    It's only dumb because I could've done million things differently that wouldn't have created a ton less work for myself. It will be pretty cool though. I've never done anything like this before and there were some things to learn. My math skills are pretty terrible outside of basic arithmetic. Thankfully we've got the interwebs nowadays and I could use someone else's smarts to figure out what the rise/run of the parts are.

    Originally I was going to just paint this. Now I'm leaning towards finishing it and doing a mix of colors. The colors here aren't the ones I'll use. I just flipped a few to get a feel for what they'd look like and stained the backside with whatever was laying around the shop. My wife likes the idea of more variety, whereas I like the cross in the middle. It kinda reminds me of a Templars cross.



    Thoughts?

    Nope. Not for me. The sublimity of the design in one color will speak volumes with no other help. Contrasting colors are too over stated here. Let the wandering eye drift upward and be surprised and appreciative. Especially if you are flipping this house.

    Just my humble opinion.

    True. I'm torn about what to do.
