A little more done on the ceiling. I'm no carver so I bought some small pre-finished aspen wood 1 1/2" x 1/2" and went after it with a Dremel tool. I picked an easy design. Some what like a design I have on edge detail of a tapa I have down in the lounge. I drew the design on in pencil and used de-burring bit to cut the design.

After cutting the design I sanded the trim down and rounded the edges. I should have stained the wood but I got lazy and painted it.

Last I highlighted the edge of the zig-zag in mat black paint and the diamond in another lighter earth tone. Cut to fit and installed with screws counter sunk through a couple of the "dot" details. I think it looks best in the mood lighting. It was a first attempt at this kind of thing and should do until I can pick up a few more skills. Thanks for looking.
