DIY Faux Ceiling Tiles


Ceiling tiles, and intricate ceiling design, dates back thousand of years and was a symbol of wealth and status.  Think old Roman churches, the Sistine Chapel, and Victorian homes…they had beautiful details on the ceiling.  Many had real silver, gold, pewter and copper plates on their ceilings, also establishing wealth. Well, I’m not suggesting you go out and paint the Sistine Chapel on your ceiling or buy 24-carat gold tiles to don your ceiling, but I do have an inexpensive and easy way to give your ceiling the grand look that these icons share with faux-metal ceiling tiles.

Here is how to get started!

You Will Need:

  • Faux ceiling tiles
  • Liquid nails
  • Acrylic paint
  • Sponge
  • Tin snips or heavy duty scissors


  1. Measure the space that you have for your tiles. If you have the exact measurement, you are ready to get started.  If you have an off measurement, you will need to trim your tiles to fit with a scissors or tin snips.
  2. Start at one end of your ceiling and place each tile in place, securing it with tape or liquid nails.
  3. Complete this until your entire ceiling is covered.
  4. Sit back, relax and admire your fancy ceiling for a fraction of the cost!
