are gone!!! Just wanted to update everyone, especially those that helped with making some of the decisions. My ceilings are now smooth, painted and look great.
It was amazing to see the new ceilings going up...for a minute I didn't think I'd made the right decision...but after the spackling was done I knew it was going to look beautiful. What a difference it makes...I look like I have a new living room. I'm one happy camper.
Now if only the movers had shown up this morning I'd be in heaven...but that's another story.
