I didn't know which section to put this in...sorry.
I have popcorn ceilings and am trying to come up with the most inexpensive AND easiest to do myself 'fix'. Here is my crazy idea. Instead of buying the ceiling tiles (yes in the long run it would be too expensive for me, because we are already doing so much and have quite a lot of money 'out there'), would it work (or make any sense at all) to buy 4x8 1/4" paneling...have it cut into 12x12 pieces...glue on pieces of the faux tin ceiling wallpaper (I've worked with it so am comfortable with that part)...then paint...THEN use a good adhesive to 'place' these 'tiles' on the popcorn ceiling one at a time?
The reason I am talking all these small pieces is that I don't think I can handle putting up new wallboard or full pieces of paneling on the ceiling. (I have to do this alone.) So basically I guess I am trying to 'make' my own ceiling tiles out of 1/4" high grade plywood and wallpaper.
Is it possible? Is it sane?
Thanks so much for your help guys!
