Step 1 panelled ceiling installation

Use a stud finder to find studs and mark all studs with pencil line or chalk line.
Prime all boards with a shellac based primer to hide all knots from coming through the final paint coat , I used Zinsser B I N , two coats was recommended. This should take a while.
The wood I have used is knotty pine with a V groove design, it comes in 8ft lengths and is priced at about .95 cents a sq ft, that is it covers 12 sq ft and is just over $11.00 a pkg , not bad, it is very thin and light great for easy installation , this product would be great for walls and back splashes , I plan to build a locker area in my basement and I will use this for the walls.

Thank you for your comment on my blog, I have a question:
You don't think I could do this over the popcorn? I would have to remove the popcorn first?

This is going to look great! I'll be watching to see how the primer holds up as I have trim work that has knots bleeding through even though I used primer and two coats of paint.
