exposing a single beam?

Rose Peck
last month

We have a large structural beam that runs through the middle of the living room. It’s is currently dry walled, textured, and painted the same color as the ceiling and walls. We’d like to expose it, and paint the ceiling white. The beam seems to be wood and we’re hoping we can just sand and stain, if not we will clad.

Any advice for exposing the beam without wrenching the drywall where it goes into the wall? Links or experience much appreciated!
