Guess what came on the weekend? No, not an email update from the post office about my ceiling tiles arriving, but the actual ceiling tiles!!
I estimated that we would need 63 tiles so I ordered 70.
They were shipped in one box!!
|I couldn't even wait for a picture so the box is mostly unloaded|
So I must first say, the tiles are not 20"x20" that they are advertised as. They are actually 19-9/16 and not overly consistent at that, as some were 19-5/8 and a little larger. Other than that, they were pretty much what I expected.
Another thing that the website claims is that they are easily cut with an olfa knife.
|A brand new blade was used for this shred!|
|We ended up using scissors which were perfect. The tiles were very easy to cut!|
|Mastic was applied on high spots and easily secured to the ceiling. |
They were easy to shift around and held to the ceiling firmly.
|The biggest part of the room was done first. |
We weren't sure that the tiles would bend and stick to the curve of the roof.
|They worked perfectly!!|

Would I recommend these tiles for a project? Yah probably, as they were really easy to install.
Keep your fingers crossed for me. I am going to attempt to paint them today!
So I am still waiting for my email from USPS telling me that my ceiling tiles have arrived!
