The ceilings are gonna finally get started

I am excited to say that I have begun the process , I have some wood and the adhesive and the special primer to hide the knots forever, I look forward to looking up and admiring my shiny white bead board ceilings just like these . Can you say stiff neck ? I must wait 48 hours for the wood to acclimate and then off to the races well a little at a time that is .

WOW Chris!! Are you installing them solo are do you have assistance? What's the process if you don't mind me asking?

I can't wait to see the final product, I'm sure it's going to look marvelous!!

Chris said...

Oh my gosh. I do NOT envy you. Can you try to walk us through how you do it? I've been asking for these in my basement, but my husband's trying to convince me that it's impossible. We know better, don't we? ;)

OMG! I've been collecting pictures of houses with these same ceilings for inspiration to do the same thing within the next year or so. Can you walk us through the process step-by-step as you do them? What type of wood did you buy (actual beaded board or something else)? Where did you find it? Was it decently priced? I'm worried about having to cut around light fixtures too. I can't imagine doing it myself, so I'll be very interested to follow your journey!

Those ceilings would be so fabulous! I want kitchen number 2! That is exactly what I want.

You are amazing with this project ahead of you. I wouldn't have a clue as to how to do it.

Projects like that make me wish I didn't have an open-concept kitchen living area! The job would be so huge...
Not that Paul would ever do it for me!! Oh, to be handy like you...

Oh I will be following this project of yours closely. I have those dreaded popcorn ceilings and the beadboard route is my dream solution come true. At least in the Kitchen to start.
Have a wonderful day,
Tam
