Our Reclaimed Weathered Wood Stikwood Ceiling!
Reclaimed Weathered Wood Stikwood
Yep, I am behind. Really behind on updates. I determined yesterday than when 15 guys are working on our house at a time, every single day, my one women blogging show can’t possibly keep up! I am determined to get caught up over the next two weeks and then we will allllll be on the same page. And yes, that is why my social media posts have been teensy weensy little sneak peeks. Because you will find the full updates here. Always.
As you may know if you have followed me for any length of time, I LOVE a good ceiling. I love a great ceiling almost more than any other aspect of a room. Almost. As I chatted last week about flooring being the fifth wall of a space, I truly believe that the ceiling is the sixth and most forgotten “wall” of all. I think that a beautiful ceiling can make a space and give any room that mega WOW factor. From paint to wallpaper to wood, there are a million and one options for creating beauty on that forgotten plane.
So without further ado, let’s chat about Winnie’s ceiling. Last week you saw her AMAZING flooring and today I am taking you to the opposite “wall” to pull together the full room update. Except for lighting of course. Which was installed today. But I am sitting at ballet tonight and have been DYING to see it hung! So with Winter and Addie’s bedrooms you will now be officially caught up with me!
Wood on a ceiling can be STUNNING! But can you imagine how difficult and heavy that would be?!? That is why I was SOOO excited when I found Stikwood! Stikwood is the world’s first Peel & Stik reclaimed and sustainable wood planking. Let’s just say that it is REAL, reclaimed wood that is planed down so thin that it is lightweight and SUPER easy to install! It literally peels and sticks. So let’s take a look at the product…
Yep, that is all the boxes it took to cover her entire ceiling! So light that I carried them all into her room all by myself. I am starting to sound like my entirely independent four year old. Hehe. And look at how gorgeous their Reclaimed Weathered Wood is up close…
How stunning is that?!? I chose the Reclaimed Weathered Wood for a rustic touch to work against the “pink-ish” doors and soon to be girlie wallpapered walls. There’s a little hint at my future plans ;-).
So let’s get started!
2. And Stick!
Yes, easy as that!
I suggest varying lengths against the starting point along the entire way. My goal was to change up the wood grain/color of each piece as well as the length when handing Mark all of the pieces. I avoided any seams matching up along the way. Variety is key.
Next, let’s chat about those pesky little outlets or other pitstops along the way. Mark first marked the places needing cut-outs on each piece with a pencil prior to removing the tape. Then he used a Miter Box to cut to the desired length, a jigsaw for any small details or outlets and a table saw to trim the width.
Making progress! It moved sooo quickly!
Three hours from start to finish and we created a breathtaking ceiling on one Saturday morning. Can’t WAIT to show you more in Winnie’s new room soooooon!!!!

Beautiful!! Can’t wait to see her room when it’s finished!! One question – Is there any fear that the flooring will fall since its peel and stick instead of stapling or nailing it down?
Brittany Hayes says
Thank you so much! I was a little worried about that at first but once we stuck a piece up there I realized it is stuck there forever! Mark messed up on one once and it was almost impossible to get off! It literally came off and splintered strips instead of popping back off. Hope that helps!
Anna G says
That’s cool to know! Thanks for replying! ~Anna
Brittany, I love it! I wish our ceilings were as tall as yours or I would so do that in our master bedroom. I would love to do that as an accent wall in our home office though. It’s been a plan to do it but we didn’t think about this product. Can that be used on textured wall?
Melissa S. says
THIS!!! This ceiling is by far the coolest idea I have ever seen! I just can’t fathom that OHW gets more amazing than this (though I am sure you will prove me wrong very shortly)! Girl…your design talent knows NO BOUNDS!!! There just aren’t words…
Flor Del Rio Le says
This is just wonderful! It is so beautiful! I am so glad I feel on your Wonderland!! You are an inspiration!
This is such a cute room. I’ve been looking for the perfect pink for my girls room. What color did you use on the doors?
Brittany Hayes says
Thanks for reading! The color is Doeskin 🙂 XOXO
Hi I live in Perth WA and would LOVE to use STIKWOOD on the underside of my outside Patio which is already insulated. Do you think the glue on the STIKWOOD would stand up to the Aussi West Australian heat?
Do you know if it’s bendable? I really want to do this on an archway ceiling in our foyer!
Could I put this over popcorn ceiling or should it be flat?
I would love to know this also! We have a lot of popcorn ceilings!
Debra Ellis says
I was wondering the same!
Lisa Apel-Christianson says
I’m wondering about doing this on a popcorn ceiling as well?
Judith McGill says
can this be put over popcorn ceiling?
No you can’t it won’t stick.
Beverley Turner says
Can this go over textured ceilings or do they have to be smooth, and if you needed to take it down what would be the process to take it off.
What about on a bathroom wall
Montgomery Country says
These are not going to be flat or stick properly unless on a flat surface. Popcorn ceilings would have to be scraped.
Beautiful! Would you have to take the crown molding down or could you leave it up?
Teresa Hayward says
I love that ceiling! I have a question about how the ceiling was primed? Was yours a complete flat primed ceiling or tape and texture? We have just a minimal tape and texture and wondered if it would still work?
Thanks! Any info would be appreciated!
JUNE Diehl says
WE have high ceilings with very little texture on them. Do you think this would stick.? ALso where can you purchase this stikwood? Very interest at looking at some ..
Rich V says
This is beautiful and I love the fact that it is a real and sustainable product. How do you think it would work in a smaller master bedroom with 8ft ceilings? My concern is that it might create too much of a boxed in feel.
I know this may sound like a silly question, but does the ceiling have to be smooth for the product to stick? I have stucco ceilings and don’t want to go through the trouble of smoothing them.
Can this product be used in a barrel ceiling? If it is flexible enough, we are interested in utilizing in our entryway.
Ramin Khosravi says
How can we buy this from Sydney Australia?
Can you tell me the manufacture and where I can purchase the chippy white wood plank ceiling.
I used a similar product on popcorn ceilings – it was a whitewashed finish secondary to low ceiling height – it was not a peal and stick product and I did not smooth the ceilings under the product – I did use a brad nailer with 18 gauge brad nails and angled the nailer in alternating directions to aid with adherence. The ceilings turned out amazing. I am interested in learning more about this product, because now that I have finished my mother’s house, it is time to work on mine.
