Paint for bead board ceiling?

Posted by savionbarnes (My Page) on

Would like advice on what finish I should paint my ceiling. I have had wooden bead board installed over my ceiling in one of my bedrooms I am at the painting stage but don't know which "finish" would be best? I particularly like the way a flat finish looks the best (I live alone so dust/dirt) is not an issue at all. Would a flat finish be a bad idea on bead board? Also should I put a primer on first or no? The color will be "country white". I've attached a photo what would you recommend? I'm also adding crown molding and my walls will be painted in a flat finish!

Do you want to cover the knots in the wood or do you want them to show through the paint?

You will need to prime with BIN( unfortunately) then paint with anything you like
