How to blend in the ceiling gap after wall removal
I removed two walls during the bathroom remodel and replaced the ~5" gap with drywall strips then filled with joint compound, I'll need to fill in more to level with the surrounding ceiling ... is this a good way to do it?
What's the best way (new 1/4" drywall on ceiling?)?
How should I fill the gap between new drywall/ceiling?
How should I match texture on the ceiling (Is that popcorn?)
yes that is a great way to do it. just fill it with mud. let each coat dry. feather it out nicely. remember it is a patch and if you are an amateur, it may always look like a patch. it is very hard to tell what type of ceiling texture you have. I can't tell weather it is popcorn or a weird orange peel spatter.
Often the easiest way to get a good patch like that is to cut out more drywall----The place you are trying to repair already has corner tape and three coats of mud---
Cut that area open to about 16 inches (or whatever structure is close to that size.)
Now you will be butting new drywall to clean old drywall.---If you try to patch that as is you will have a thick spot that you will not be able to hide.----Mike----
