We had an unfortunate incident where water seeped from the floorboards in our bathroom and started leaking from the ceiling downstairs. It's caused some yellowing/cracks across it, which can be quite noticeable if you look up.

Do you think I could just paint over it (white) and it'll be okay? The cracks are a bit worrying but I'm sh*t out of money and don't really want to replaster the ceiling.

Fill any cracks. you'll need a stain blocker to seal the water stains, if you have an old tin of white oil based undercoat lying around somewhere that will do, you'll then need to recoat the whole ceiling with probably 2 coats of emulsion.

Leave to completely dry out and then caulk over cracks.

Don't use caulk on a flat surface. Use a powder filler. Rake out cracks if necessary first and flush fill. Sand smooth once dry. :thumbright:
