I’m baffled and need help.
Last summer my living room ceiling was plastered smooth.
My bedroom ceiling was plastered smooth.
My kitchen ceiling was supposed to be plastered smooth but the guy I used lied to me. He did not really know how to plaster. He had only worked as an aide to real plasterers. Luckily, he had only done the kitchen ceiling. When he failed to plaster the ceiling properly, he called in his friends who were real plasterers. They came and tried the best they could to correct the kitchen ceiling with joint compound. But the kitchen ceiling ended up having some texture in certain spots.
His friends then did the plastering for the living room and bedroom. Both of these rooms came out with a uniform, smooth look. And when I painted the rooms they still had a uniform, smooth look, as I previously mentioned.
However, when his friends corrected the kitchen ceiling there was texture in some areas while other areas were smooth.
I am now painting the kitchen ceiling. I’m using Behr Premium Plus Interior Ceiling Flat Paint (http://www.homedepot.com/p/BEHR-Premium-Plus-1-gal-Flat-Interior-Ceiling-Paint-55801/100206081?AID=11210757&PID=6158626&SID=ifpruoyeeq00zey5001rw&cm_mmc=CJ--6158626--11210757&cj=true).
In terms of roller covers, I’m using a 9-inch 1-1/4 inch High-Density one (http://www.homedepot.com/p/Linzer-9-in-x-1-1-4-in-High-Density-Polyester-Roller-Cover-RC-147/100211700?AID=11210757&PID=6158626&SID=ifprvv4g0d00zey5001rw&cm_mmc=CJ--6158626--11210757&cj=true).
Here’s the problem. When you look at the living room ceiling from my kitchen, it has a uniform white look. The only dark spot is the shadow of the ceiling fan which is okay. See below:
Now let us go to the kitchen ceiling and view it from the living room. Before doing this let me remind you that the kitchen ceiling has smooth and textured areas. This is an example of a smooth area:
This is an example of a textured area:
The problem is that after I painted the entire kitchen ceiling I still had dark spots where there was texture. This is how the kitchen ceiling looks like when viewed from my living room:
I desperately need advice:
1) After the second coat of paint, should I have gotten a new roller cover?
2) Should I simply go over the dark spots with more paint?
3) Or is there nothing I can do about the dark spots?
Any feedback will be HIGHLY appreciated.
