To get started with your ceiling beam installation, gather a few tools you may find handy, including a hand saw, drill, tape measure, and pencil or marker.

Now you may install the faux wood beams. Slip them over the top of your mounting boards, and then use the pre-drilled hardware and mounting holes. Screw the faux wood beams into the mounting board.
