DIY. Do it Yourself project that can be done by you or aHandyman.
My Mom has lived in anold house on a farm in Virginia since 1940.
The upstairs Bedroom neededsome remodeling. Ceilings were old and sagging from water damage and age.
We found a product thatwas easy to cut and install and would transform the ceilings from ugly tobeautiful.
We are so happy that wefound Styrofoam Ceiling Tiles and moldings from Ceiling Tiles By Us
Ceiling Tiles and Moldings made this room looked finished and modern.
Before Ceiling was old and water damaged.
Before Ceiling unfinished drywall with wallpaper over it. So Handyman installed lauan boards over it.

    I live in an old apartment and the bedroom has vinyl faced, fiberglass lined ceiling tiles (not the healthiest choice!) and fake paneling. I can't wait to tear it all down along with the lead-based old paint on ceiling and walls that's lurking behind all that stuff, and get back to being more safely refinished with low VOC paint. That's the room in which we spend the most time living and breathing!
