The doing was simple enough, the idea came because I hate taping and mudding.
This same concept could be done in many ways. Even wallpaper could be blocked in to achieve a nice effect.
I'm considering this myself, or maybe doing a slap-on texture. Quick, inexpensive, easy, and attractive is what I'm looking for.

Sort of.... I'm rabbeting the baseboards and window trim in the foyer and doing a half wall of the same effect. Of course, it's neither easy nor fast, but it's close to free!

I'll add some pictures soon.

Maybe if I'm inspired enough, I may do just that small ceiling the same as the dining room. Then the remaining pieces will be used in my magic boxes as lids and bottoms. Here's the wall so far. You see this as you come in the front door.

That's a cool idea! Looks awesome! I might look at something like this for my basement. I want drop ceiling so I can easily access wiring, plumbing etc, but why not make it in wood eh.

Those panels are tight to the 5/8" drywall on the ceiling. To make it a drop type would have been much more work.

Sorry, but I don't like the whole "Made in China" crap look of 2011!
If this is the 80's look, I'm happy with it, as is my wife...... and after all, isn't that what REALLY matters?

That's the bottom line in making your house into your HOME.

It's not good to spend to much time worrying about what someone else might like in your home.

UNLESS it's the wife, of course!
