“Over our heads” in the master bathroom.
I’m talking about the ceiling.
It used to look like this bumpy, rusty nastiness….
Anybody who willingly sprays “popcorn” on a ceiling should be shot on sight.
It took Jamie an hour to scrape all that crap off. True Cavender Diary fans will remember Jamie scrapping the popcorn off the master bedroom ceiling the first week we were in the house 5 years ago. He’s a pro at it by now, even made himself a stylish trash-bag-poncho.
Lying on my back and looking up…this is the view after Jamie finished.
Since there were just too many holes, from the heat lamp, vent, fan…..and nothing over the shower, my brother Ben and I decided that the best plan of action was to just add a fresh layer of drywall over all the existing ceiling.
….took an act of God for one of us to hold a sheet of drywall over our head and the other to screw it into the cross beams. (Look at the far right and you’ll see all the holes from our failed attempts)
But we got it…….
Then the layers of mud and light sanding to make it all smooth. (I’m starting to see why people use popcorn spray now)

Stunning. Am I right?
Next step….can lights.
…or is it paint?
