We scraped the popcorn off our master bedroom ceiling last week. I mean hubby scraped it off...I watched. He then primed the ceiling and told me that the dry wall tape was showing. UGH...I hate when that happens. Well, I said, "We should just cover the ceiling with beadboard." "Are you serious?" hubby replied. I said, "it will be easier than trying to smooth out those dry wall tape marks and it will look so good!" So........hubby agreed and off to Lowe's to pick up 4 beadboard panels.
We began putting Liquid Nails on the ceiling and then we tried holding the beadboard up to the ceiling all while hubby used his nail gun to secure it to the ceiling studs. Well, let me tell ya...that was like a I Love Lucy scene...pretty comical! The nails were not holding it and we couldn't hold the beadboard up very long. UGH!
So my hubby told me this was a bad idea. I told him other people had beadboard on their ceilings so obviously it was doable. He then put on his thinking cap and decided to go back to Lowe's to buy 2x4's to create T-stands to hold up the beadboard and some finish nails. It was a lot of work, but oh so worth it!!! We LOVE our beadboard ceiling! Added so much interest & charm to our bedroom.
