There's a company here in the Seattle area that will come out to your house and do it all for you. I think it's called StarLite. We had it done to our master bedroom - it's FANTASTIC!!! A very realistic and accurate representation of the night sky on the night you specify. It is a little pricy though. Our bedroom is approximately 15'x20' with a cathedral ceiling. We bought their service during the Home show last year so there was a discount, and I think we paid about $550. Smaller, flat ceiling rooms would be less. If anyone wants their number, I'm sure I can find it and post it for you.

However, I did go looking online afterwards to see if I could reproduce it myself in other rooms. This is the closest thing I found: http://www.glo-net.com/glow/shop/index.html?itembnsk.html

I didn't actually order it, so I don't know how good it is, but I pulled the url to let you see. I just noticed that they have glow in the dark thread too! Might have to get me some of that!

I would suggest that if you're going to do it yourself, make the extra investment to get the longer lasting glow powder (not sure if it's offered on that site). There is one powder that lasts about 20 minutes, and another that lasts several hours long. The stuff that StarLite used is the 20 minute kind. That's the only part that was a little disappointing. Other than that, my husband and I giggle every night about how we are sleeping under the stars!
