Bead Board Wallpaper Ceiling

I am joining Kimba's DIY Party today with my new addiction, bead board wallpaper!
Someday I will post the many changes this room has gone through in the past year. Because it is small and easy to change I change it. A lot.
This little entry powder room now sports a bead board ceiling.
Not real bead board, the embossed wallpaper type that EVERYONE has been using. I used it as a backsplash in my kitchen and now on my powder room ceiling. It is addicting! Once it is painted it looks pretty good too.I trimmed out the edges with a bit of molding and it gives the whole room a fresher, more farm house look.
I took all the black and white framed pieces to use in my newly painted stairway. So I replaced the wall art with white painted mirrors. Now the powder room is much brighter and airier. Where have you been using bead board wallpaper?
If you haven't used any yet, where would you like too?

Have a light hearted day, P.
Pin It!

Pam, this ceiling looks really good! Were your ceilings smooth to begin with? Mine area all textured. The bathroom walls look like they have a stencil on them- did you paint or is it paper?

Gorgeous! I would like to use this, but my walls and ceilings are textured and I'm not sure if it would work. I love that round mirror you have on the wall, it's gorgeous!

One of the first houses we renovated we put beadboard everywhere...loved the look. I only WISH they had the wallpaper...that would have been so fabulous! Your room looks delightful and warm with the texture on the ceiling..good job!

I think I just blacked out for a moment staring at the ceiling. I love it! I feel like I've been living under a rock...never seen this paper until now. Must...Get...Some....Soon!

I love the bead board ceiling and the mirror. Your bathroom looks fantastic! Well done.

We're finishing a mudroom and putting beadboard on the ceiling. I decided on beadboard panels since we're already using it on the walls and then my hubby has to put it up and not me. I love the look. You did a great job.

Your decor is amazing! It truly is! The beadboard w.paper adds great texture to an otherwise plain ceiling. Great idea!
