Paneling On Ceiling

I AM GOING TO INSTALL PANELING/WAINSCOATING OVER A PLASTERED CEILING.I WAS GOING TO GLUE AND NAIL IT DIRECTLY OVER THE PLASTER. COULD ANYONE TELL ME IF THIS WOULD BE THE BEST APPROACH? THANK YOU

Cool

I highly recommend that you attach the ceiling paneling to 1X4s nailed across the ceiling rafters to prevent sagging, instead of trying to nail to plaster (which won't hold unless you happen to hit a rafter anyway). Gluing to the 1X4s would help, too.
If this is an older, historical type home, I would look into beaded board panels that look like a type of ceiling that would have been installed when it was built.
I have seen this done in historical homes that I've sold, and it looks great.
You can get 4'X8' beaded board panels of your choice either pre-primed for painting, or stained, or plain wood for poly-coating.
Good Luck!
Mike
