Removing Peeling paint from the ceiling
This is a house that I am renting. The paint has been peeling off the ceiling in a small room. I have scraped the falling pieces and there are 2 layers of paint. Apparently the original ceiling was green and now they tried to go over it with cheap texture paint. I need to remove all of it because there are strips of green old, possibly lead paint, and still some texture paint on the ceiling. If I was to just paint over it now that some of it has been removed it would not look right. But the rest is being pretty difficult to remove. I bought some paint stripper called "Tuff-Strip" in a spray can to apply to the ceiling. It is removing the textured paint some but the green paint is being pretty difficult to remove. I am trying to redo this because my 28 month old granddaughter is now living with me! Any suggestions now on how to get all of the paint off?
