Bathroom ceiling "sand painted"


Hi, I have a small bathroom (8 x 11 ft) which had the ceiling ruined by burst pipes overhead. I had the original contractor come in and repair the ceiling and then paint it with something that would disguise the repair. He used some sort of "sand" additive to the paint and it looks just awful. Wondering if anyone has any ideas on how to cover this without spending a lot of money. I was thinking I would love to cover with the tin-look panels, but that seems a little advanced for me to do myself. Thanks in advance for your help!

Tin and water wouldnt work too well since it would rust pretty quick

I would suggest your local paint store [not the big boxes] for a roll on sand or drywall texture to smooth things out. Just tape down the walls a ways keep it clean and roll on a new texture for the ceiling.

Then finish off with a primer and top coat.

There are new panels of the tin design that are now made of plastic. Peel and stick. Start from the center and work your way out to each side.

Could be an alternative..

Just be aware of the already rough ceiling texture and the peel and stick adhesive.

Is getting the contractor back in again an option? If he promised he could make the repair look good, then that is what he/she needs to do, obviously without charging you any more money.
