    Quoted from enjoyvelvet:

    How did you guys paint the ceiling? What paint sprayer? I would need to cover all my pins and furniture. I have an exposed ceiling and have been wanting to do it.

    If you have exposed calling, you are going to have to spray it.

    There is no way you can brush or roll between the all the wires and pipe openings.

    Don't buy the expensive 3mil plastic to cover the walls and furniture while you spray. Use the cheap stuff that pro painters use, it's about 1/10 the cost.

    The only place you want the 3mil stuff is if you are walking on it.

    Quoted from jhanley:

    My bad. I thought he was talking about painting a drywalled ceiling.

    Oh yeah that'll do it. I've always wondered aboot painting normal drywall with a gun but figured it was harder than you'd think!

    If it's a rough surface like Stucco or Cinder Block, it's quicker to spray.

    Roller puts more paint on the wall, less as overspray.

    No masking with roller either.

    House is 1988 no asbestos . 6 inches above drop ceiling as there is the main drain pipe and furnace ducting.

    Thanks for all the ideas it's appreciated... now to make a decision.

    No actually we get along quite well in another thread, you just didn't really read the point of the thread and started on your own tangent. No worries, it happens.

    Perfect timing. I am about to move into a house that has a drop ceiling in the “game room” and I’ve been trying to figure out what I’m going to do with it.

    I know I'm in the minority (or so i think), but for a game room I think a drop down ceiling is the best. I cannot tell you how useful it has been to pop up the ceiling tiles and get stuff done. It can also look quite nice, IMHO. Example:

    It's like that commercial for Basement Guys remodeling company .

    It can either look like a basement, or it can look like the rest of your house.....

    Looks like I need to create a “ceiling fan — should I remove or keep” thread

    I went with plastic molded tiles in my laundry room. Way easier to work with then those old fiber, cardboard nasty things from the 70's.

    Plus you can get them with different patterns and different sizes. Sorry about the laundry room picture, no pins allowed in the house, at least not yet.

    I think a vintage look rotating double fan is really cool, but not so sure there is enough ceiling height for it. It looks like your pretty close to giving out free haircuts already

    Can anyone tell me if these are asbestos ceiling tiles? I’m assuming they are. House built in 1953

    I don’t think anyone will be able to tell you from photos alone.
    Unless they were installed in the last 30 years, I would treat them as if they contain asbestos.

    I went with black tiles over the pins and round the circumference to limit the reflections seen in the glass. White tiles down the middle to keep the game room from looking like a dungeon.

    For those that sprayed their ceiling black, how safe is it? How long after the application do you need to ventilate the basement? I'm assuming fans must be left running for several days to clear the fumes out. Any concern if the furnace is in the room?

    Using Latex and I didn't see any of those issues as a concern.

    Throw out any aftermarket toppers now!

    Solid advice regardless of ceiling clearance.
