So far so good, I think. We contacted the guy that did the ceilings in the rest of our house to come in and do our kitchen. He stopped by yesterday and gave us an estimate. It was reasonable enough and we hated doing the one ceiling we did enough, to go ahead and hire him. So we should have a new ceiling within the next couple of weeks!
