    What does the ceiling look like now? Major cracks or other damage should be fixed first.

    Is this the same ceiling or 2 separate? What type of ceiling do you have. Does it have a popcorn finish? Hard to give an answer with no details.

    I did mine with paintable wallpaper that looks like tin ceiling tiles. Cut in 4 tile sections, it's easier to work with. Have to do some matching when putting up each sections but not bad. Overhead work is one of the hardest cause your neck and shoulders catch it. I love it white, but have seen it painted silver or gold.

      You need to run a chalk line for wallpaper. For the ceiling you will need help. Why? Because no room is perfectly square. You measure out a few inches on each end and mark it. A chalk line is a piece of string covered in chalk. Put one end of line on one mark and other other end on the other and snap. Cut pieces to fit on the starting edge to your chalk line. The rest should go up easy. you can also find a video on utube.

      The front of the house has been painting a while back. I did not do my bedroom because I can not stand the smell of paint. That's mostly why I think modpadge

    The suggestion by Huntress that she cut of ceiling wall paper into squares makes it sound doable .... whether I use paint or mod-podge.

    Thank you all for your replies.

    The wallpaper comes prepasted. Just slide through a wash pan of water. Let excess drip off or pat with paper towel and apply and smooth. Stayed in place every single time and when wet still moveable to get in place correctly. Just Google paintable wallpaper , there are lots of choices.

    They have all types of adhesive contact paper/wallpaper that look really cool. Check Amazon and also ebay. I just picked out a great one for our bathroom
