A New Project?


I caught myself looking at houses on the internet the other day. I emailed a few to Marcus when he was at work. He said, "Are we moving?"

We have only been in this house since the end of July and I would be crazy to move again. Katie was just one week old, and it was a beating. I love this house, but I guess I like change too. Sooo, instead of moving, I need to maybe do some redecorating.

I really miss my old tin ceilings from the last house:


I also miss the high ceilings, the big yard, the neighborhood, the pool and the storage space.


But with this house we are totally debt free!
(except our mortgage, I still consider that debt free though! )


Anyway, I have seen this textured wallpaper before that has the pattern of the old tin ceilings.
And you can paint them whatever you want. I think I would do silver and then antique it up a little bit.


Have any of you used this? Would it be hard to make it stick on the ceiling? It says it's pre-pasted and will even go on textured walls. I just didn't know if it would be a big horrible mess and almost impossible to do. Because somehow when I start projects, that's how they turn out! Messy and impossible!

I would LOVE your input. Hopefully it will work so we don't have to move again!

My ceiling had new sheetrock on it so it was smooth.

If you have popcorn ceilings don't do it!!! LOL. But if you have just textured ceilings I say go for it, what's the worst that could happen?

I am such a good friend that I volunteer my home for you to try this on first. Selfless? Yes.

We did this on a small room ceiling and have covered paneling with it. It worked great... If I remember correctly (which is a challenge for me!) We cheated on the ceiling by rolling extra wallpaper paste on ceiling and allowing it to get tacky before we put the booked paper on! I totally think you should go for it! Make sure it is totally dry before painting....
