$550.00
2 Days
Easy

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

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.

    I would love to do this in my dinning room. Where do I get these tiles?

    You said you use a cheap caulk to put on your ceiling tiles and hold them up, now is that going to give out and are they going to fall ?

    Can you do this on vaulted ceilings? And do you think it would look good. Also it seems that this would be a lot easier to clean.

    I bought a fixer upper, and hired a drop ceiling guy. He installed coffer tiles with hanging grid. The project was 1700 sq. ft. and it cost $3850.00.
