So I'm Whacking The Popcorn Ceiling.

Heaven help me.

I have never ever not one time in my life applied drywall compound to any surface at all ever.

I picked a small room to start with and practice. Sraped the cottage cheese off dry and sanded. Did a skim coat on low spots and sanded. Did another skim coat and sanded. I had an easier time smearing on a skim coat when i watered down the mud.

It takes me a long time because just a few minutes on a ladder hurts my back so bad I have to sit down and cry for a while. Then I get back at it when I'm finished crying.

So anyway, I think this practice room is about ready for paint. It looks real good. So good that I want to do the rest of the house, no matter how bad it hurts.

Hoping over-head has some tips to help me along. Or giggling at me for what I've gotten myself into.

Zinsser B-I-N is great stuff. You can paint over oil base paint and get adherence if you use it.

I have the damn popcorn on my ceilings as well with the added touch of ****ing glitter. Awesome.

Then do what I said, smooth in where you dig too deep and paint it.

Once the popcorn is down, you can always hit it with some knockdown.

My instructions would be not to try to do that yourself.
