C.H.E.A.P Way to Cover 4x8 Ceiling Seams.

As a carport, the ceiling was covered with 4x8 sheets of plywood. Seams are no big deal, normally....BUT...start measuring and the feet add up quickly, meaning $$ to cover them.

We found a roll of rusty barb wire hanging on a post and...voila...C.H.E.A.P seam cover! Hubby also cut out a star shape from plywood, for the center of the ceiling.

The barn tin we put on the walls was also a 'find' here on our place. We like how our room turned out and now have plenty of room for company.
