Kristen Davis, who is a really talented painter based in Atlanta (I've mentioned her before here and here), emailed me photos of this really beautiful nursery ceiling project she just finished. Her client wanted to put Osbourne and Little Coronata Star wallpaper on the ceiling in her baby's nursery, but the commitment and expense was keeping the client from pulling the trigger.

Kristen came the rescue and stenciled the eight-pointed star pattern on the nursery ceiling, and it's pretty much a dead-ringer for the original wallpaper.

Kristen gave a little how-to on her blog HERE. I really love how this project turned out!

Also, when I was searching for the Lonny images from the nursery Jamie did (at the very top of the post), I re-stumbled across this great project that Dina from Honey & Fitz posted a while back. She had a similar idea as Kristen, but used a Silhouette machine to cut out the stars on silver contact paper so she could just peel and stick.

I think both methods are great options for a completely gorgeous look, don't you? I'm crazy-obsessed with the night sky and would love to do my own version of a star ceiling in my girls' room. A dark, dark blue ceiling with glow in the dark paint over gold paint for the stars would be so cool...
