    It looks fabulous! I’m so thankful you shared this. We may try it in our bathroom that has the old drop down ceiling tiles. This would look so much better! Keep up the great posts!

      Thanks so much for stopping by to see our bead board ceiling Cori! Best of luck trying it in your bathroom, if it’s a bathroom with a tub or shower you may want to check out the PVC or vinyl tongue and groove bead board which they sell at either Home Depot or Lowes (I can’t remember which sells it or maybe both do) My husband and I plan to add the a PVC bead board to our kids bathroom soon. The PVC is exterior grade so you wouldn’t have to worry about moisture as much as you would with real wood. If you are talking about a 1/2 bath than I think the wood bead board would work just as well. Take care, Tara

  4. The ceiling looks great Tara! We did planks in our kitchen last year so I know that doing anything to a ceiling is hard work . 🙂

    Love it! Am really interested in knowing what type of paint you used for the ceiling. It looks like a high gloss white.

      Thank you so much for stopping by and for your sweet comments about our bead board ceiling Terri! After priming the boards we used a semi-gloss white paint. It’s the same paint we used for all of the trim in our house, Sherwin Williams Emerald semi gloss extra white:). Take care, Tara

    I love it! I’m not a fan of our textured ceilings and even less of a fan of the idea of what’s involved in scraping them. You have the perfect solution!

    If these are 4/8 sheets how did you hind the end seems, or is the room smaller than 8 ft wide?

      Thanks so much for stopping by to check out my bead board ceiling Sue! For this ceiling I used tongue and groove boards but I did use 4/8 sheets in my other son’s room which you can find here, http://lehmanlane.net/boys-bedroom-remodel/ and I used 1 X strips every four feet painted white to hide the seams.
