Don’t ever let anyone turn your sky into a ceiling…-livelifehappy…. UNLESS it’s covered in oriental bliss with these awesome vintage Asian drop ceiling panels!!! There are EIGHTEEN of these lauan wood drop ceiling squares. Sixteen have a yellowish frame or background and two are off-white. They are all hand painted and gilded, possibly from a pattern or mold, and embossed with bright colors of gold, red, green, and yellow with designs of dragons, oriental symbols, and flowers…they are breathtaking!! AND, OH MY GOODNESS, the possibilities!!!!  Obviously, they would be perfect for a drop ceiling in an oriental restaurant or nail salon BUT there are so many other ways that these panels could be displayed. If you don’t have a drop-down feature and want them on your ceiling, tac them up…or use some decorative screws! They can be configured any which way you like and in total there is 72 square feet of them!  Use them as an entire wall cover or large wall hanging or they could be individually framed art as well.  Put molding between each square to give it a more finished look OR spice it up and hang them horizontally or vertically. These panels are a designer’s dream. With a little creativity the potential is never-ending! We are in awe of these remarkable antique Asian panels, certainly you must be too…make them yours!!
