Choose a Picture Frame
Choose a picture frame that's large enough to maneuver around a dining room chandelier.
Draw an Outline
Center the picture frame on the ceiling around the light fixture. Use a pencil to draw a line around the inside edge of the frame. Tip: Find a friend to hold the frame. It will be much easier to draw the line without having to hold the frame also.
Tape It Off
Apply painter's tape to the ceiling on the outside edge of the pencil lines.
