And came up with this sketch -- the idea is that the star would be thick and flat, and come down a little lower than the beams, I think. The ceiling is painted deep blue, like a night sky; the star and beams would be in dark wood.
I tried just drawing it with four beams (which is what we originally planned), but that looked kind of stupid -- if we do this, I think it may really need eight beams. What do you guys think?
If you can draw something prettier, or suggest a different design, that would be appreciated!
