Tyler Zowat, noticed the listing and called me to come to his home in Perris, California. He had a little girl's room with blue walls and since his daughter had grown up and moved to private school, he wanted the bedroom closet finished. This post is a continuation of the previous post to finish the sanding and priming of the ceiling.
This post show the six steps of sanding and sealing the ceiling. 

Step 1: Fig.1 and fig.2 shows that after the popcorn the ceiling is very uneven and needed to be sanded.

Step 2: Fig.3 and fig.4 shows a pole sander was used to sand the ceiling. A 150 grit sanding screen was used for the ceiling.

Step 3: Fig.5 shows the ceiling was rolled using latex primer with a nine-inch paint frame and a 3/8 inch (9.525 millimeter) nap roller cover.  Cover the floor to protect the carpeting and tape the tarp with 2-inch masking tape at the edges.

Step 4: Fig.6
shows the primer to be used on the ceiling. Pour the paint into a metal paint tray with a plastic liner. Used an extension pole and screwed into the paint frame. This gives you more control over the roller and also helps reduce fatigue. Now dip the roller into the paint and applied the paint to the ceiling edges around the complete perimeter of the room.

Step 5: 
After the first coat is finished, roll the second coat in the opposite direction.
Step 6:
Fans were used in the room to the ceiling area to assist in drying the paint. This type of primer dries in one hour and is ready for the next job.
