We bought a 1979 ranch house a few years ago and the ceiling has this texture that makes me crazy. I say there has to be a reasonable way to fix it or cover it up. My husband says it isn't worth it. I'm wondering if anyone else has successfully dealt with this sort of texture. There are sunbursts around the ceiling fans and kind of half circles every where else (some more deftly executed than others).
I can't seem to add the image file (TOH system says it is not a valid file), so here is a link to the image on my Pinterest page: https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/originals/39/55/c6/3955c6e0f8142043589c37e0731e2e0e.jpg
