The ceiling paint is much better. You can see the new paint, but it is not as obvious as the photos. It is still too smooth; but I figure that is the difference between going over paint and over drywall. Would roughing it up with sandpaper help? What grade?

I have to decide whether to take it back. It is not quite right and I used less than 1% of the can.
I don't think sand paper is the answer. How did you apply it? You could try painting over it again with a longer nap roller cover. That should give you a little bit of a rougher texture.

BTW, Is the ceiling flat? If it's like a vaulted ceiling with different parts at different angles you only have to paint corner to corner. You wouldn't have to paint everything.
