Crafts, DIY, and Affordable Projects Lovers!
Let me start by introducing you to my little dining room renovation story. My house was built in 1902 and I had the chance to buy it in October 2010. Let me say, that some rooms needed some Serious remodeling. My every morning routine was resuming, in eating breakfast, drinking my green tea, reading my favorite home decor magazine, and facing my “boring” looking ceiling. So, guess what? This Wednesday morning, I decided to take on a “Do it yourself project”, and remodel my dining room ceiling. I was searching the Net, watching home remodeling videos, and reading different DIY project articles.
Finally, I came across a company’s website, providing beautiful PVC ceiling tiles and most importantly selling them for a very affordable price. I looked at the gallery pictures, read reviews and watched some customer’s video installations. I discovered that, these tiles could be applied over any smooth surface and even POP Corn ceilings. WOW!!! That was my reaction. No more convincing was needed. I immediately called the company to get some help on finding the exact number of tiles that I needed to accomplish my project. I ended up ordering some beautiful PVC ceiling tiles # 33 in Antique Copper. They looked amazing on pictures and even better when I opened my package. I didn’t want to lose any more time, and drove to the nearest Home Depot with my shopping list. What I needed, Contact Cement Gel or Power Grab Loctite.
Yes that’s it! Then I just followed these 4 easy steps.
- Prepare the surface
- Draw an angle
- Apply the adhesive
- Place & Press.
The end result: Me Very HAPPY, my dining room ceiling amazingly beautiful, and my friends’ astonishment by my creativity.
PS: I saved all my cut pieces and used them to decorate a mirror frame and texture one wall in the family room.
