Update your kitchen - or any room - with a new decorative ceiling made of ornamental beams and panels.

Mark the beam locations on the ceiling panels and snap chalk lines between the marks. Then rip a ceiling panel and leftover scraps into spacer strips the width of the primed 3/4-in x 3-1/2-in stock. Beginning with the outside edges of the ceiling, glue and nail strips to the ceiling panels.
Why not go straight to nailing up the 3/4-in x 3-1/2-in boards? Their 3/4-in thickness means the cove mouldings you'll install later wouldn't leave much of a profile. By adding strips the cove moulding will cover up later, you give the "beams" more texture (Decorative Ceiling Project Diagram).
