Ogres have layers (and so does our house)

On Saturday, we set out to repair the study ceiling and we quickly learned that there were several layers of paint and wallpaper between us and the plaster. Yes, wallpaper on the ceiling. I’ve seen it successfully pulled off in smaller rooms, like the bathrooms in my parents and Jason’s parents houses. But in a study? Hmm. So, we peeled it all off:

Then, we had to get some chemicals to peel the final layers of paper and glue off:

Finally, a clean(er) ceiling. Luckily, the plaster ceiling is in REALLY great shape, with only a few small cracks that we’re not going to even bother repairing since you can’t really see them.

This week, we’ll be washing the ceiling with water + the wallpaper remover chemicals. If all goes well, we’ll be priming and painting the ceiling this weekend. The Lowe’s man suggested that we do a faux finishing technique on the ceiling, but I suggested we go sistine chapel-style on it.

a good look for our study ceiling?
