Day Three--Above My Head

I honestly can't think of a topic that can be funnier for me than this one, because, due to my height, most everything is 'above my head.'  :D  However, here goes:

As I've said many, many times, this house is quite old and has needed/is in need of a number of repairs.  One of the things we had to fix quite a few years ago, was the living room ceiling.  At some point, there had been a leak in the living room and the ceiling was actually falling down in several places.  We hmm'ed and haa'ed about what we were going to do for a long time.  I didn't want to put ceiling panels/tiles up, as there wasn't --at that time--anything that I liked.  Replacing the ceiling with drywall was too big of a task for do-it-yourselfers such as us, so we decided to go a different route:  tongue-in-groove pine paneling.  I must say, it was one of the better decisions we have made for this house.  The living room is very warm and cozy with the wood ceiling and it NEVER has to be painted!  And it looks just like this:

(neither of these is a picture of my ceiling ;))

That's an AWESOME idea for a ceiling. Especially since it never has to get painted!

If we ever did actually build a new house, this is one of the things I'd miss the most about this one. :)
