Hey all, I am just about done with the reconstruction of my theater. I have done lots, of of the things I did was to lower the slope on a vaulted ceiling by framing in a new ceiling. Right now it's just sheetrock and mud. I am not the most talented at sheetrock, mud and taping. I can do it, but am not a pro. Thus my question. I really would like to have a ceiling without texture on it. But fear that once it has had it's final sanding and first and second coats of paint, all the imperfections will show. I really want to go with a black ceiling, or even a charcoal gray. Definitely I don't want any sheen to it, thus as flat a color as possible. What I am wondering, will a flat black or flat dark charcoal gray help hide imperfections?

Thanks all...

Rick

Absolutily. The flat black will do a wonderful job, as long as you have no direct lighting shining directly to the ceiling. You can find a link to my Cyberdyne Cinema in the Contruction forum.
