Good Questions: How to install a tin ceiling?

In the thread on Dana Joy's house tour, commenter Kerry said, "I loved everything, including the wonderful ceilings..Do you have any suggestions on where to look for how to do this? I live in a vintage apartment with some nice period details, but there is a drop ceiling in the bedroom! I'd love to do away with it. Thanks!"

We found two online walk-throughs (with pictures - hooray) at, here and here, and one at It seems like a very do-able project.

Most sites that sell the panels also offer installation instructions so there is lots of info on how-to out there. M-boss sells the panels, as does The American Tin Ceiling Co. and Brian Greers.

Has anyone installed tin ceilings in their home, either as a diy project or with professional installation? We'd love your input....
