Please help.....

We have a problem with the joint where the two vaulted ceilings meet.... its all crooked ....when it was been plaster we could not see it but now after painting the ceiling it is very obvious.
How can I fix it? I am handy...

A small eyebolt at each end with a string (preferly a little darker than paint) stretched between.

Get a piece of thin aluminum and cut the angles of your ceiling planes onto it connected by a gentle curve in the center. Pack the wavy seam with drywall mud and pull the aluminum jig down it. I've done this and it works perfectly.
