Painting strategy for ceiling planks


I'm installing some ceiling planks, 8 feet long, T&G, with beveled edges to give a semi-wainscot look on the ceiling. These are unprimed pine, so they priming and finish coat. They are going on a cathedral ceiling ranging from 8 to 15 feet high, in combined living room/kitchen area.

There will be about 200 8 foot pieces. Some options are:

- spray outside or in the garage (cold weather in the 40s/50s daytime, require sheeting off the garage)

- brush outside or in the garage

Both of these options leave the problem of not having enough space to spread the planks out to let them dry. Can't leave them outside, build some sort of temp shelving of some sort inside the house or in the garage?

- install first and then brush (very long time and sounds back breaking up on that ceiling)

- install first and then spray (very fast but much prep work to sheet off everything in the house)

Thoughts?

Wow have you thought about stain?
OK paint I would spray in the garage and do as many as you can comfortably when dry do another batch. Will take a little longer but I think the look would be worth it.

I'm wondering why 8' planks?
Butt joints are going to be pretty close together.
Any I've ever done where at least 16' long.

These kind look more like beadboard, and I only wish they were available in 16'.

Personally, I would hand brush them with BIN. Dries and cures fast. Then I would spray them with Regal Select Flat, twice. Recoat one hour, longer in cooler garage. Install wearing rubber gloves and touch up. Avoid excessive touch up, so you need to be careful.
