Materials Needed:

  • large picture frame
  • pencil
  • paintbrush
  • painter's tape
  • 1 pint of water-based primer
  • 1 pint of semi-gloss, latex paint
  • nail gun
  • 1-1/2" finish nails
  • protective eyewear

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.
