    Before doing any repairs, be sure the leak is completely fixed. Repairing plaster can be a big job, but here are some step by step instructions on how to do it right:

    Try to Google it, usually there is someone who does that type of finish, but if you have popcorn ceiling - and depending on size of room - it might be an opportunity to remove the popcorn yourself. It's a messy job but can be done by homeowner. Then have someone come in to do smooth ceiling finish. It's hard to match finish with a patch.

    Here is a link that gives three options for making the repair. If you cut and remove a section you will need extra hands to hold the piece in place to attach it. Good luck!
