This One Room Challenge, sponsored by Better Homes and Gardens, is getting me so excited. My laundry room renovation is under way and the first week project is complete – the wood ceiling install. It has been sponsored by Wallplanks and I couldn’t be happier with this product. I will teach you all about it, but first here is my 6 week strategy:
Week One – OrigInal Room Reveal (read here)
Week Two – Wood Ceiling
Week Three – Wallpaper and Cupboards
Week Four – Floating Shelves
Week Five – Drying Racks and Folding Table
Week Six – Decorations and Reveal

I have seen wood ceilings for some time now and really wanted to try it out in the laundry room. Additionally, I wanted to use peel and stick wood planks. I connected to this amazing company and know that their products are good to work with. Head over to their site at Wallplanks.com to read about the history and how the planks are made.
Step One – Decide Color and Amount
You can cruise their website to see all the different styles. I love the rich tones of the Normandy – so that is what I picked. But they have many different wood stains to choose from! You will also need to measure the square feet of your space and figure out the amount you need. They sell them in boxes so you will round up to the next box. The area I needed covered required 2 boxes. Use my code #CGMFB for 20% off as well!
Step Two – Find Studs
If you are laying this wood on the floor or a wall, you do not need studs. Quite frankly, it would probably be sticky enough to stay secure on the ceiling, but I decided to find the studs and add a few brad nails into the planks for security. Find your studs and draw lines so you can see where they are during the whole project.
Step Three – Install
You will want your circular saw or miter saw (I used my Tacklife Miter Saw and you can find that here). Here are the steps you will repeat:
- Measure the length you desire
- Cut the length you desire
- Make sure the tongue and groove are on the exposed side (so you can attach the next piece)
- Peel off the backing and press firmly to ceiling (use level)
- Make sure to use a level to asure your board is straight
- Use weighted roller to ensure adhearing
Make sure to stagger your boards how you desire as you continue this process.
The last plank on the final row may need to trimmed to fit the area. Do this with your circular saw and be careful!
The final product turned out beautiful and only took an afternoon. I am already trying ot figure out where else I can add Wallplanks Peel and Stick Products!
Let me know if you have any questions – this was such a fun project!
