can someone tell me if we can still purchase false styrofoam ceiling beams, which can be painted or stained to resemble wood and then stuck on with adhesive?

we have a high cathedral ceiling, popcorn finish, but all the verticalgyproc joints are cracking so not wanting to have to redo the whole ceiling, we are looking for a light beam alternative which could be used to camoflauge the cracks. any ideas

Hi vjoyandmike,

I did a quick search of our site and found a (hopefully) relevant thread. Though I can't vouch personally for or against any of its posters, Piffin is a "regular" on our BBS:

You might also try your own search; there have been several threads including on the "Fix It Forum"; good luck.

We ordered our fake beams online at www.*****.net.

Got them within weeks.

They were so easy to put up and they look totally realistic.

Their customer service is spectacular too.

Give them a try!

Good Luck,

I managed to get reproduction beams from Oakleaf in the UK.

(I had some old reproduction beams that needed to be replaced. I took the old ones down - which were covering pipes - inverted them and put them in the garden as a huge plant/flower pot. They look really good :-)
