ceiling

i was wondering if you can paint a dropped ceiling or will the paint dry and crumble the squares? any help would be appreciated:D

Re: ceiling

Yes, you can paint a dropped ceiling - it's just going to take a whole lot of paint because the tiles are very porous and will soak up a bunch of it. I would recommend removing the panels from the grid to do the painting so that if and when the panels get shifted around you don't have white poking out from behind the track. Also, if you're not painting the track it will make the job easier not having to protect/work around the track or having the panels stick when the paint dries.
