    That looks great! I love it! Many people have low ceilings and can't put full beams... this is a great way to get the rustic beam look without actually getting the full beams. Cheaper too! :) My company specializes in cost efficient ceiling beams.. This is a trick we use as well. lol

    • @Real Antique Wood cheaper is right. We have an ample supply of sources for beams around here, but we needed to be able to anchor them to our studs and didn't want to stress them too much. :o)

    We did almost the same thing but it was because our ceilings started sagging but I love the way it came out. Your look great!!
