When last me met, the ceiling looked like this:
So, that's the ceiling until the reveal. It came out quite nice, but to be honest pulling it down and putting up a new ceiling would have been a thousand times easier. Because of the plaster-and-lathe and the weight of the panels, I had to use toggle bolts (look closely at the pictures) to make the panels flush with the ceiling. These things worked great:
|Front hall as staging area.|
|The panels were so heavy they had to be cut in half.|
|Which of course meant the seams had to be covered.|
|Probably an easier way to make sure the |
boards lined up - but I couldn't think of one!
Next up: The walls!
