# Budget upgrade Good Bye Popcorn Ceiling

2 Days

What an easy and relatively inexpensive way to cover up the 80's popcorn ceiling . No mess no scraping. Just glue up ( we used cheap caulk for the adhesive) These ultra lite tiles made of recycled Styrofoam are easy to cut and can be painted.It would have cost around $1200 to have the old ceiling scraped down and another $1200 to have it refinished and painted . I spent around $600 total. I think it looks fantastic and with out all the mess !

Only 2 more cut pieces to go.

Place the tiles as close together as possible.

We dropped a chalk line to find the center ( which just happened to be under the ceiling fan.) and started laying the tiles out from there.

      You might be better off ,using the Plastic or Vinyl. It cost about 25% more, just an idea. , Good Luck.
