Shower ceiling

I'm redoing a bath-shower and will be sealing the walls with a plastic barrier followed by backer board, laticrete and then tile. I don't know how to create a water-resistant ceiling. Can someone tell me the stackup for a non-tiled painted (but waterproof) ceiling?

thanks - Mark

Mark, if you are tiling to the ceiling, why not go ahead and tile the ceiling? It would look great!

If you don't tile the ceiling, a well primed and painted drywall ceiling will be fairly water resistant - be sure to use a latex enamel for the finish coat, preferably a bath enamel.

My ceiling is just Benjamin Moore kitchen and bath paint - no problems with it at all
