ceilings are driving me crazy
I've got a 1920's farmhouse that I am slowly remodeling. As I go I am trying to rid my house of ceiling tiles and to cover up exposed fubar plaster. In a few of my rooms I have used 16' lengths of pine tongue and groove stained a pickeling white. This is not cheap and is pretty labor intensive. In a couple of my rooms the boards have contracted so much that there are visible gaps between the tongue of one board and the groove of the next. Arrrrrrrggggghhhhh.
What I want is a solution that is diy friendly and that compliments our house. Does anyone have a suggestion? If you've faced a similar problem and have any pics of your solution, I would be extremely grateful.
