When Painting the ceiling in the kid's room, all of the texture peeled right off. The only texture that stayed was at the drywall joints. Now we have a situation... We need to get the remaining texure and paint off & then re-spray the ceiling.

1) Do we try to sand it off? What should we use? What tools?
2) Can we spray the texture on our own? What tools do we need to buy? What do we use to spray the texture?

{We're pretty hardcore & will attempt anything**

We did try to call a professional(s), but no one seems to want to take a job this difficult.
