Your Ceiling Could be the Perfect Surface for Color 

Painting over your plain white ceiling, like this gorgeous blue dining room ceiling from Benjamin Moore, is a subtle way to add color to any room. Dining rooms are the perfect spot for ceiling color, especially with a trayed ceiling or decorative molding that separates the new paint color from the walls. Though painting your ceiling can be a DIY painting project, if you’re not sure you have the right tools (or enough patience to paint a ceiling,) you might want to leave it to the professionals.
