That looks great. There will be some more lights in the ceiling won't there? Didn't see any electric rough-ins through your new ceiling.

Or is your new work semi-transparent and the old lights will shine through?

Actually it gives off plenty of light. Just when I took the last picture I wanted it to be with the lights on. But, the flash still went off and made it look darker than it really is. I'm good @ drywall but still a rookie @ Photography.

I know what you mean with the flash and photography in general. Any time I happen to end up with a really good picture...it's just dumb luck.

Nice job.

That is too cool. Would you mind telling me what a skip trowel is? Is it a special one, or just a flat blade laid on it's side and drug across the wall/ceiling?

Thanks for showing.

Thanks Ben. "Skip Trowel" is the name of a type of texture.


I use a "Hauk & Taping Knife" to apply it.
