Decorative paint question

Hi all a newbie here....I have a couple questions i hope someone can help me with....We have a place up north that we used as a summer place only...It had a open cathedral ceiling.....The problem was that we started going there in the winter and it was so cold because the heat would just go out the roof....We then put in a ceiling and put in 10" on insulation....The original beams are a little saggy from the years and the drywall is uneven because the new joists we put up are straight and the old ones are a little bowed....I heard that the decorative paint can cover it up and will make it look even...Is that true? How hard is ut to put on decorative paint? I heard you can either blow it or roll it...Is that true? if so can you rent something to blow it with? Is it worth it to use??

Thanks
Mike

I have had a lot of luck with textured paint being able to hide imperfections. The paint has a sandlike consistancy. You need a lot of elbow grease but the finished product looks great!
