Uneven ceiling oil paint
Redoing our kitchen, just had most of the walls replaced with new drywall, taped and sanded. Then our painter used an oil-based primer on the walls and ceiling, and finally painted the ceiling. (We're trying to get as much painting out of the way before installing the cabinets.) It's a kitchen, so we were going for a smooth finish (color is an off white.)
The ceiling looks awful. From some angles it looks fine, but from others it looks totally uneven. At first, I thought I was seeing the sun reflected onto four patches on the ceiling; the finish looks that different from the wrong angle. The painter says it's because of a bad sanding job. Only the ceiling is painted so far, but he says to expect it to be just as bad on the walls.
Is there any way to fix this? Right now, we're thinking we'll texture everything, kitchen or not. I really don't want to deal with that oil primer any more, and I'm not even sure it'd do any good to layer on (and sand) half a dozen coats.
