TOH Pro Tip: "For a pleasing layout, and to avoid awkward cuts at the ends, always work from the center of the ceiling out. Snap two chalk lines: one that bisects the ceiling's length and one that bisects its width. Use the point where the lines intersect as your starting spot." —Tom Silva, TOH general contractor
For a traditional farmhouse look, try 2½-inch V-bead (far left) or 1⅝-inch V-bead (top). Wider "boards" tend to look less busy in a large space. There are also custom styles, like casual, random-width V-bead (near left).
Cut a piece of ceiling tin to fit inside a frame, mount it in the kitchen, and attach recipes with magnets. • To see more of this photo and find out more about the items shown, turn to page 80 of our September 2014 issue or page 13 of our online Craft Fair, http://www.countrysampler.com/craftfair/flipbook.php?issue_code=C0914 • Buy the issue: http://www.samplermagazines.com/August_September_2014_Country_Sampler_p/c914b001a.htm
