Beaded Board Adds Charm to Any Kitchen
Nothing says country like beaded board accents in a kitchen. Many of us grew up with a home (or our grandparents’ home) with a front porch ceiling clad in beaded board. Especially along the east coast area. Often the ceiling was painted a light blue. There is lots of folklore about why they were painted blue…from the ability to fend off insects to emulating the sky. No matter the reason, it was a charming ceiling surface.
Beaded board dates back to the Victorian era when it was used in the more utilitarian areas of the home. Today, if you are a fan, it can go in any room in the home. Here are some ideas on how to enhance the kitchen with the beaded board look.
