just put an addition on and was running into a problem with painting the ceiling. the old portions of ceiling were painted with paint that had a small amount of sand in it. not enough to show much texture but enough to be clearly different than the new drywall. what can i do?
Check out a product from Zinsser called Roll-A-Tex. It comes in different textures, Coarse, Medium, and Fine. You add it right to whatever paint you are using. It's messy, so cover the floor well, and wear safety glasses so you dont get a shot in the eye , thats no fun.
