I have been talking about planking the ceilings....all of them. We have vaulted ceilings and a lot of space to be covered.
After taking into consideration the magnitude that would be this process (mainly Mr. TSL's face when I talk about redoing all the ceilings and my mom telling me just to get over them and stop looking at them) I have decided to just deal with them.
Seriously with 4 kids and the giant ass mess scraping them would cause, what was I thinking. I have better things to do with me time, like read other people's blogs about how they scraped theirs and looking at planked ceilings on Pinterest!
I have researched a few alternatives.
Paint it white, then it looks clean and fresh and gets rid of the little shadows caused by years of cobwebs :)
Paint the whole room including the ceiling the same color.
I know this is a stretch, but I really like this....paint it darker. It's bold and kind of sexy :)
We'll see. Until then, here is also a good tip of you have to repaint your popcorn ceiling.
