To make a long story short... I've got a painter (he's one of the expensive but really good ones- not a cheapo or anything like that), but I decided I'd try to save myself a buck and paint the popcorn textured ceiling in one of my bedrooms by myself. The idiots at Home Depot who sold me the paint made it sound easy, and I've painted plenty before with great results, so I wasn't too worried about it.
So I rolled (yes rolled
which I've now learned isn't so smart) one coat of paint onto the ceiling, and the result was a semi-disaster. The ceiling peeled off in some places (but not that bad), and in other (actually quite a few) places, the paint is now having a cracked as it's drying (and the paint looks like it could start peeling off at any second). My question is this: How bad have I screwed up the ceiling? If I call my painter and have him spray it will it turn out ok, or is the peeling going to need to be scraped off now? I'm asking here first because it's going to be fairly embarassing to have him come out and see what a poor job I did. Just want to get an idea of what he's gonna have to do to fix it. Hopefully he can just spray over my crappy job and it will be ok but I wanted to get your guys's opinions first. Thanks!
