I have a ceiling that looks like this: I am assuming that it is just mud or something similar to make the texture. Any ideas on getting this crap down? I know it will be a mess, but eventually I plan on knocking down a wall and combining my kitchen and utility room. One room, has this, the other does not. Therefore, it must go. Oh yeah, the blue is gone as well. That color was not a good choice. It taught me to always have someone else second color choices - since my color perceptions are poor.
