restore the ceiling

Posted by Steve and Tina on January 21st, 2000 09:52 PM

We live in an older home built
around 1940. We are updating the kitchen and in a previous
attempt to update it another owner put wall paper on the
ceiling. It is now falling down. We would like to redo the
ceiling in some fashion but behind the wallpaper are the
ceiling boards we think are the original ceiling. We have
heard of the term "battanburg" used in ref. to the ceiling
but we can not locate a ref. to this in any of our research.
If you are familiar with this term could you explain what it
is and advise us of how to restore the ceiling if possible.
you can pull off the wallpaper but it does not come off
evenly...We also are installing new wainscotting around the
lower half of the walls in the kitchen. Would it be possible
to use this same material on the ceiling? Our porch ceiling
has it?
