DIY tray ceiling update with reclaimed wood We are huge fans of interesting ceiling treatments, from the exposed beams in our current home (including the basement!) To DIY beaded ceiling and ceiling coating as the fifth wall of your room. Any ceiling can be enhanced with a facelift, but an indoor staircase ceiling in particular is a great place to add a distinct ceiling idea (like this coffered wood ceiling). A small rustic pallet or reclaimed ceiling made the star of this lovely Kimberley entryway from Home_Kimprovements. (She shared her daughter’s rainbow wall here recently, too!) Pallet and other reclaimed woods are great for adding farmhouse style to any room in your home, on a budget – from an all-pallet plank ceiling to a kitchen backsplash or kitchen island, or even a headboard Wooden, coffee table or wooden TV frame! Kimberly is our guest today to share how she and her husband installed this pallet wood ceiling in a cozy entrance staircase ceiling. Make sure to see more of her cool projects and pretty home on Instagram, too! How to Install DIY Herringbone Wood Ceiling by Kimberly from Home_Kimprovements This project was totally FREE! We found an ad on Craigslist for a small company that is dumping platforms, so we helped ourselves pile them up. Read more about where to find pallets and how to choose good pallets here. Material and Tools Pallet Wood (We used about 10 pallets) Finisher Nail Guns Air Compressor 1×2 miter saw (enough for the perimeter of the comfort space) The piece with tools Step 1: Breaking the pallets We disassembled the pallets and cut each piece of wood into 13 inch pieces and put out a design The fishbone we wanted. Watch Justin’s tips for deconstructing platforms (and preserving her personality) here. This is the time to put the best side up and make sure the colors in the woods flow evenly across the ceiling. We did not stain our clothes but feel free to stain, wash white or color wash, if you prefer. Step 2: Hanging the Plywood Prop We added 1/4 inch pieces of plywood to fit the cozy space so we had something to attach the woodblocks to. They were attached to ceiling joists (similar to this other wooden pallet ceiling tutorial). Step 3: Installing Pallet Wood Chips We used a nail gun to secure each piece of wood into the plywood that we mounted. We started around hanging the light to avoid as many cuts as possible and worked our way up using the herringbone pattern. Step 4: Cut the Edge Pieces Once you are done with all of the pieces before reaching the edge, you will need to cut all the pieces to fit the remaining gaps. Don’t worry if there is a small gap next to the wall. Step 5: Adding a Frame We put a frame around the edge to cover any gaps using a 1 x 2 and trim the edges at a 45 ° 📐 angle to meet at a point. Step 6: Decking Have everyone look up and admire your ceiling by hanging some pretty winter paper bag snowflakes! (Watch the tutorial and more here at Kimberly’s IG Stories.)
