I believe I may have mentioned this but when I was a wee young lad of a child I took a hose and sprayed everything in the backyard…including the patio ceiling. Not out of spite or revenge or rebellion, just a kid having fun with the hose. And when I say say “sprayed it”, I mean soaked that baby down. A few hours later the ceiling started to form funny shapes and stuff starting making cool bubbles.
20 something years later and my little backyard water party has come back to bite me. Every single little piece of pealing paint had to scraped down. I decided to hire someone to do it just in case there might have been a change of it being lead based paint. Chances were highly unlikely but just in case…
Next, the ceiling was re-mudded with a very light texture.
Then, the Mr. caulked and I primered and painted.
Ahhh, much better.
Moral of the story…leaving your kids alone with a hose could be a costly mistake.
