Liven Up Your Ceiling With Wood Planks By Doing This Great DIY Project

Sometimes paint does not cover up a stain or unevenness on the ceiling.  You can take of that problem with this DIY wood plank ceiling project.  By adhering wood planks to the ceiling you never have to see that annoying spot ever again.  If not the ceiling, how about the walls?  Thanks to Tatertots & Jello for this project.

Here are the basic steps:

1. Estimate how many planks you think you’ll need based on the size of the room. We estimated the planks at about 6″ wide. Add an extra 10% just in case.

2. Go buy the planks and BRING GLOVES. These planks are rough and you will have more splinters than you want. If you forget to bring gloves, go buy a pair of the inexpensive leather ones in the garden section. It’s worth the extra few dollars. Buy your paint and a can of white KILZ primer, too.

3. Bring the planks home and prime them. First, cover over any of the colored mill printing (you’ll know it when you see it) with a nice coat of the KILZ primer. It WILL show through if you don’t. We tried this on the guest room wall project and it worked well, too. We used white primer for the boards so they would not soak up as much paint when we did the final coats.
