One of our favorite activities here in our FixitUp home is porch-sitting. I guess, to be technically correct, porch-sitting is inactivity. Either way, we love it.

However, its tough to love when the porch ceiling above you is, well, awful. So for this porch project, we tore down the existing ceiling (and existing trim as part of a complete porch remodel, but that's another story) and we're replacing it with an authentic looking bead-board made not from wood but from PVC. Whether you use wood or another material, installation is essentially the same and here's how we do it.

Before You Begin: Tools
Beyond the ladders and basic hand tools, the four tools we rely on most for this is our work bench, miter saw, narrow crown stapler, and table saw.
