How to make a drop ceiling look good?

8 years ago

So we have a teeny tiny "room" off of our living room that I would like to fix up to use as my mom cave/sun room. It is actually the front porch which was enclosed years ago by the previous owners. It is approximately 9' x 9' and has 2 large windows (1 facing South, 1 facing West). It also has a really ugly drop ceiling. I lifted one of the tiles to see what was going on in there, secretly hoping the original ceiling was vaulted or something, but there was electrical running everywhere and it would be a lot of work to take the drop ceiling down and make what's left look pretty. I really don't want to spend a lot of money on this project since I hope one day to rip the walls down and turn it back into a front porch. So I've decided to work with the drop ceiling, but something needs to be done. Does anyone have any ideas on how to make it look updated and pretty? I would love to paint the tiles a light blue colour, but I have no idea what to do with the metal parts.
