Beadboard Ceiling???

Ok, we have a crappy popcorn like texture ceiling. It's not the "true" popcorn ceiling, but more of a painted texture ceiling, probably done by the P.O. when they were trying to make this lovely house into the ranch've seen the wallpaper samples from August 1985 right?
Anyway it's been bugging the crap out of me. (thank you speedy for the word of the year it seems) and there's no way I can scrap that stuff off. Hubs will NOT put up a new ceiling of drywall or re-plaster just because it bugs me...(hell he could have lived with the crappy wallpaper from 1985, me I love the color of the living room.) But I could possibly talk him into a beadboard ceiling. I don't think he realizes quite how labor intensive it would be and by then we would be already started and he likes the look of beadboard. I know I'm sneaky....but as in previous posts....I have a way of getting my way.
So whatcha think?

Well Hello BOB!

Been a long time dear! Where have you been?
Haunting the neighbors?
Bothering Diane?
Oh I see, scaring Candy's kids? Gotcha!
Now it's the fall, and time to come home? Oh if you must. But please try not to turn the kids lights on and off too much. You see the youngest is now 4, if you remember Bob, he was 2 when we moved in, yup in the crib too! And anyway he is in school now. He has to get up pretty early. He's also a bear to get up in the morning. So if you could, please, don't flick the lights on and off too much, or just do it in your old master bedroom, our room? Please? The little ones really need to get some sleep. I know you like to turn them on in a clockwise circle and then off in a counter clockwise circle, but please no. I really don't want to have to take the lightbulbs out of the light again. They're a pain to but back in again in the morning at 4:30am. Don't you remember how I broke that one last year?
Please Bob, please...
