Rustic Wood Kitchen Ceiling•
Posted on March 05 2018
We planed the rough boards flat and jointed up the edges. After applying a couple coats of Minwax Stain in Dark Walnut, they were ready for a new life! We nailed up the boards to the rafters and didn't bother sealing the boards. I love the extra texture and interest it adds to the ceilings now. It completed the vision we wanted, was affordable and effective!
Having a similar ceiling dilemma or just wanting to add some texture to your space? Maybe planking your ceiling is the answer. We did the same thing in our small bathroom but instead of staining the boards for the rustic warmth, we whitewashed them... accidentally. I was planning on painting them full white but after accidentally using the cheap white ceiling paint from Walmart, the paint didn't quite cover the boards fully. This left us with a whitewash look, which showed the grain of the boards and I loved the result!
Thanks for all your sweet words and compliments on the exciting news of us moving the other day. We're extremely excited to get the ball rolling and to see what kind of character we can add to our blank slate!
