The progress made on the living room ceiling today was the trim and finish kind which never (never, never, never) goes quickly. (An understatement as all of you DIYers know all too well.)
We got the ceiling molding around the entire edge of the room. This had to be installed before the grid work on the bead board could be done.
I can't decide if I want to paint the molding right up against the ceiling white or polyurethane it. What do you think?
We got the three long grid pieces up. This is one side of the room.
And this is the other. That leaves only four short pieces of grid to go down the center of the room (perpendicular to the long pieces) where the sheets of 4 x 8' bead board are butted together. These grid pieces will definitely be painted white to blend in with the ceiling. I need to do the painting and/or polying soon because I want it done before we lay the flooring.
Next we'll do the fiber cement board up where the wood stove pipe goes through the ceiling. I thought we would do that first today, but we decided to do that after the ceiling grid was in place. Then comes the fireproof backing on the portion of two walls in the corner where the wood stove is. Then the tile under the stove. Then the flooring.
Sheesh, never a lack of things to do, is there?
