How do I repair a large hole in the ceiling?
I want to remove my old swamp cooler vent and repair the hole so it looks like the rest of the ceiling. My ceiling is textured (not popcorn) like plastering.
Is the rest of the ceiling popcorn or texture? You can get drywall compound and put it on. I have a textured ceiling and I used a damp handful of newspaper. I put the compound on the newspaper and dabbed it n the ceiling. You can hardly tell the difference, except the ceiling was whiter in the newly done area. A coat of ceiling paint took care of that.
If you have popcorn texture, you can purchase a spray can of texture at the hardware store.
Yes, the spray texture in an aerosol can may be the best, easiest fix. You can spray it on to best match what is there; then personalize it by using a rag, brush, wadded up aluminum foil or whatever to tweak it to match.
Thank you very much for the responses !
