Ceiling Beam end fix with Rope to look good w/ drywall
We have 5 large round ceiling beams (Southwestern round 'Vegas') in our family room. The beams have shrunk over the years and there is a space between them and the drywall. The original builder said when this happens it sometimes looks nice to dip a 1 inch rope in varnish and attach to the beam on the end, so as it continues to expand and contract the space left between it and the drywall does not show. ANY ONE DONE THIS--Got any tips?
There are also special fiber component collars that come in 2 pieces that will accomodate your situation. The varnish is a good tip, however if you dont want your home to look like a boat, I would shy away. Permalife and Fypon are both great producers of the 2 piece collars.
