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.
changed out the ceiling fan

    Where can we buy them? Could I find these at Home Depot? Lowes?

    How has this held up over time? Did the glue adhere well to the popcorn ceiling? How old was your popcorn ceiling?

    How have they held up with the caulk for adhesive? How long have they been up now? Very cool look, way nicer than popcorn ceilings!! I may try this...

    It looks like it would be very difficult to 'glue' it to the popcorn ceiling. Please

    explain.
