Peeling/cracking paint and textured ceiling
I have slowly been chipping away at my cracking ceiling texture for two years now, and I'm thinking that there's got to be an easier way! The thing is, there are different thicknesses of texture. It seems like this cracking/peeling problem has been an issue for a long time, and the previous owners' solution was to apply the cracked areas with more and more drywall compound. So in some areas, I may just have five layers of cracking paint, whereas in others, I have an inch of drywall compound. Any ideas on how to remove this with minimal damage to the orginal textured ceiling, which appears to be in decent shape under all this gunk?
The original texture/paint is the peach colored one.
Thanks in advance!
