Plank Kitchen Ceiling- My Texas Home Makeover Post #28

Just in time for Thanksgiving... I finally finished the painted maple ceiling in the kitchen!  It gives this little enclosed kitchen & breakfast room a quaint cottage feel.  

The ceiling planks are painted Sherwin Williams Eider White.  Its gray undertones are brought out by Sherwin Williams Agreeable Gray on the walls.  

I am so happy to have finished this ceiling project! I still can't believe that I cut and hung the crown molding all by myself in one day- I stressed over that part for weeks and weeks beforehand.  
The valance was sewn from remnant fabric that I purchased to make a table cloth.  The shutters are the grey stained wooden shutters that I have upcycled all over this house!  The light fixture was recycled from the previous owner's dining room.  
The neutral wall and ceiling colors work okay with the previous owner's neutral custom cabinet stain, but the cabinet's top coat is starting to yellow quite a bit.  I will likely paint the cabinets in summer 2016.  What color?  I am thinking a deeper shade of gray with blue undertones for the bottoms and a lighter gray for the upper cabinets.
