The plaster is in great shape but I really want to get rid of it and paint a nice flat ceiling. I've read about and been given a few options from do-it-yourself'ers.
1. Sand it down with a "pole sander" and then paint over it.
2. Tear out the drywall and redo the whole ceiling.
3. Drywall (drywall...same thing?) right over it and forget it.
