All She Needs is a Little Paint and Spackle

This old house is in need of a facelift both inside and out. Now that the cracks and crevices on the outside have been filled, it is time to start on the inside. The ceilings in both the breakfast room and New Sheville are in really bad shape. The textured cathedral ceilings in Sheville are way past our comfort zone and we don't even have a ladder that can reach that high, so we called in a professional. The breakfast room only had a crack running along the join on the exterior walls, most likely caused by the house sitting empty for a few years, but it was also a little dingy.


It is going to look a wee bit better, yes?

Omg, I'm amazed at the difference! I honestly didn't think the ceiling was that dull but now that I see the contrast I'm shocked! Looks great!

There are a few things that pay to hire a professional ... I would say high ceilings is one of them. Love old houses but they are a lot of work.

Karen Anne,

The ceiling in the new addition is drywall, which was coming apart at the seams. The breakfast room in the photo is plaster.
