Question by  andrewpeters (18)

Where can I find antique Victorian ceiling medallions for my family room?

I would like a ceiling medallion to place around my family room light to add drama to the room.

If you want the actual antique ones you will need to shop vintage shops or websites. You can get the same look with the new medallions sold at home improvement stores and either use them as they are or paint a faux finish to make them look older and vintage.

There are specialist home decoration stores and depots where they stock different style medallions. They look like real plaster, can be painted over with emulsion, but they are actually from a hard kind of styrofoam. They can be easilly applied, using double sided sticky tape of construction glue. These medallions are available on line too.

In many states they have special stores that salvage items like this. I would try browsing one of those stores or looking on ebay.

You could try to go to an antique shop, or a legit pawn shop. They shouldn't be too hard to find. They may even sell replicas of the ceiling medallions.
