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.

IMO, few things date a house like popcorn ceilings. I can't stand them. Next, you'll have to ditch the brass fixtures.

I've knocked quite a bit of popcorn off of ceilings.

I use a spray bottle to mist/dampen it, let it sit for a minute and then scrape it with a wide drywall mud knife.

One of my brothers was going to do this himself until he heard that some of the early stuff contains asbestos.

whacking the popcorn is one way to put it I guess. We always called it whacking the monkey

This is what I have planned for my next act.

I still have a few spots left in the practice room. I am typically a perfectionist, (I have agressive/repulsive disorder) so I am figuring the paint will expose little imperfections more than hide them.

I absolutely love the way it looks already. I can't stand the popcorn anymore.

We are going to do some new floors, so I want to do this first.

VIVA LA POPCORN WHACK!!!

Our house is only 8 years old and it has popcorn ceilings. I thought that shit went the way of the dodo back in 1986.

We've scraped all the bedrooms and bathrooms. Only the living room and kitchen left.

I would kill whoever thought up knockdown texture for walls first.

My house was built in 78 and the whole upstairs has this crap on the walls.

It would be easier if the house was empty.

The boss isn't happy about moving things and the mess. That and she's an extreme instant gratificationist.

I am literally against all odds. Or something like that.

be careful, a lot of acoustical textured "popcorn" finish contains asbestos.

Get it pretty wet with a spray bottle and scrape it off.
