My bathroom ceiling had vinyl wallpaper on it when I bought the house. It looked terrible. When I stripped it off, it took several layers of the oil based paint with it in patches. Some areas of the ceiling have paint, some show the previous layer, and some peeled all the way to the drywall.
What is the best way to prepare this ceiling for a new finish surface? The old paint is likely to be lead based.

I am new to this forum(but not painting) and don't want to step on any fingers but this is what I would probably do.

Remove any loose paint and sheetrock paper, bubbles in the paint must be cut out, skim the bad areas with joint compound, may take more than one application, don't try to build it up that just makes for more sanding. After it is completely dry sand smooth with 100 grit paper then I would texture the ceiling, prime and paint with a quality paint, preferably a bathroom paint.

Being sure to let each application dry completly before resuming.
