How-To: Add a Medallion to Your Chandelier

If you want to class up your chandelier, consider adding a medallion to it. I've already showed you how to turn medallions into wall art, and alerted you to a new medallion light. If neither of these ideas strike your fancy, then maybe a ceiling medallion in its traditional placement is for you.

To find out how to install one,

.

  1. Locate ceiling framing and mark attachment locations on casting.
  2. Pre-drill and countersink at attachment points.
  3. Apply construction adhesive to the casting. While holding it firmly in place, attach the casting to the structural framing.
  4. Screw attaching casting to structural framing.
  5. Fill the screw holes with plaster. After the plaster has dried, sand it thoroughly until it is smooth.
  6. Fill in any irregularities along ceiling with paintable caulk.
  7. Prime and paint the medallion to match the ceiling.
  8. Enjoy your newly ornate ceiling!
