    Paint it all one color. It's cheaper than most other alternatives.

    The other thing that I saw in person and it was kind of nice-- they stretched fabric over the joists and used trim pieces to nail it into place. The owner of the house was a seamstress and she used cloth pieces that were not too busy for the effect.

    They make a paintable wallpaper that you can use on your ceiling. I have used it in my bathroom and now in the process of using it in my kitchen. It's pre-pasted and comes in a variety of designs. It's not too expensive. I got mine at Home Depot but they also carry it at Lowe's and Ace hardware.

    Get a super thin sheet of wood, they come in different weights and thicknesses. Nail that up there and paint away.

    I've seen on Rehab Addict (HGTV) where they spray painted the entire basement ceiling white. All the pipes and beams, everything! It was very inexpensive and looked great..also lightened up the area. You would need a spray painter. If you don't have one maybe you could rent one...or maybe borrow one.
