I do not recommend using this wallpaper on the ceiling. It is so heavy that I couldn't keep it on the ceiling. It will take several people to help you hold it up and is not a project for a tired couple by any means . I just opted to cut it into smaller pieces and piece it up. It looks like tin panels now. Anything looks better than it did before with all the holes. I do need to keep you all informed we are doing everything on a very tight budget. The wallpaper was so much less than having someone drywall. What is up there now is not drywall. Its like a particle board.
