That's an easy answer. Then you have to deal with what's under it. In my
kitchen the plaster would need a skim coat before it could be repainted. Of
course, there's no metal in mine, just a circular design in the stipple and
"flower bursts" around the light fixtures.
I don't find it ugly at all, but SWMBO considers it "tolerable".
