When it is freshly scraped the ceiling looks OK.  The paint and plaster are almost the same color.  But a few months down the road it starts peeling again.  It is not hard work scraping.  Cleaning up afterwards is almost as much work.

Life is short - and getting shorter.  Paint it or sheetrock over it and move on to something more pleasurable, like maybe those new kitchen cabinets I think I remember you talking about months ago but not recently.

That stuff is amazing.
