When I repainted the white ceiling of my L-shaped train room, I primed the ceiling with two coats of KILZ to cover stains from a few water leaks from an unsealed joint at the roof. Then I repainted with CEILING WHITE paint. A mistake.
Later on (but too late) I thought of a better design for the ceiling:
Paint it FLAT BLACK
Then string Christmas mini-lights (with all white bulbs) in random crisscross patterns to create a starry sky
Install a separate dimmer circuit for the starry sky lights for a just-right effect
I have a blimp with Santa on board; I intended to suspend it from the ceiling with a circular "flight path" by
attaching it with high strength fishing line to a disco mirror ball motor.
Regrettably, this ultra cool idea never came into being. Perhaps on my next layout ...
