Remedy for ceiling that was poorly painted with sand paint
Tae on May 01, 2018My advice would be to texture the entire ceiling then paint it all one colorHelpful Reply
Janice on May 01, 2018I would try scraping as much of the sand off, especially if you don't like the look of it. Maybe try sanding it lightly after scraping and then repaint the entire ceiling using a good ceiling paint for long-lasting solution. Good Luck!Helpful Reply

Janice on May 02, 2018They were'n't thinking! Many people do not think any further ahead than the next month or so (sadly). :( We once moved into a house and the previous owners had painted the bathroom with sand in the paint. You don't realize how many times you touch the walls while reaching for a towel, etc. until you've had sand painted walls! It took lots of work and elbow grease but we finally got it removed. I located some info on the internet that may help you. The internet wasn't yet available when we discovered our "lovely sand painted" walls decades ago. https://www.hunker.com/13401786/removing-sand-texture-on-ceilingsHelpful Reply

We have built-ins on either side of our gray brick fireplace, and I would love to paint the fireplace out in white. However, my husband feels it would be a bad idea.
