This ain’t your Nana’s decoupage.

November 28, 2008

Cast out those visions of barfy Botticelli-embossed trinket boxes and Victorian Valentine-covered end tables. Time to take a walk on the wild (decoupage) side with Mr. Peacock, who upped the ante on this old-school art by decoupaging his ceiling. Voila!

Mr. P’s upside aviary makes for a grand statement — and it’s a fairly easy achievement, too, given the medium. What an eye-catching way to show off tall ceilings, or, to add visual interest to low ones.

What would you stick to your ceiling?

    What a great idea! I like it. I love the black and white birds.

  2. Very graphic and modern, yet the subject matter has a Victorian clout, doesn’t it. I love it, too.
