|Stipple ceiling in the dining room.|
|Stipple up close. Basically paint with sand blasting beads mixed in.|
After watching a few videos and reading a few how-to's, we figured we could get the main floor done on the weekend after we received possession of the house before we moved everything in. It would be easier with nothing in the way and the mess it would surely create, could be cleaned up much easier.
We started by wetting the ceiling down, letting it sit, and then taking 8" and 12" drywall knives to it to try and scrape it off. After this, we would skim coat with drywall mud, let it dry, sand, repeat, paint.
|3 more hours of scraping ensued,|
|After contractor sanded and skimmed.|
|What a mess.|
|All done after final sanding.|
|CIL ceiling paint - tinted pink but dries white so you can see where you have painted.|
|All done, 2 rooms out of 10!|
