So I toddled off to my local DIY store near work and got some samples of what I thought would be suitable wallpaper. Some of it turned out to be better than others in terms of how easy the pattern was to cut out and the scale of the pattern.
I started the design based from the hole for the light as this will form the centre piece but as the rooms are deeper than they are wide it can be slightly tricky working the design in.
I cut out the pieces of wallpaper to simulate plasterwork or if you have a suitable piece you can stick the paper on like a sheet.
It’s important to not move the pieces of wallpaper once you have decided on your design or you’ll never get them glued in exactly the same place!
I also remembered to leave a gap at the edge for my coving.
I glued mine directly onto the painted MDF but you can also cut a piece of mountboard to size and glue that to the MDF once you’ve finished your ceiling.
I was really pleased with the results.
