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.

Setting the ceiling on fire would have been faster and less painful.

Don't forget to apply a liberal amount of beer. That always helps with the removal...

i'm going through the same thing.
my largest room had paint over the popcorn, so the water/soak/scrape method only got about 50% of the old material off, leaving a rough surface
the other unpainted ceilings were a breeze
thinking about using this product, no sanding required (thanks Over-Head)

If you do it right with the spray bottle, it will look a lot like orange peel texture.


At Dinny's age, he doesn't have to worry about asbestos anyway....

This works great as long as it hasn't been painted. The good thing is that the shit is impossible to brush and roll so it rarely is.

So what do you do with the ceiling after you knock off the popcorn - leave it flat and paint it?

Oh yeah, speaking of paint, make sure to use flat paint on the ceiling when you're done, it's more forgiving of surface imperfections.

in my rooms with popcorn texture only, the water/scrape took it down to plain drywall and taped seams(like the vid). the painted room was terrible

My house is only 11 years old and it has that shit throughout. I would love to remove it because it is so outdated but the mess involved makes me very hesitant.

I did ours a few years ago...I did a dry method, whereas I scraped at a 30 degree angle and knocked down the high spots. Wiped it down with a damp rag to remove the dust, then painted a few coats. This eliminated the need for skim coating and sanding. It also left what looks like an orange peel texture. It looks really good, I must say.

Regarding the mess, it will be messy, but I found the best way to contain it is really quite simple. Obviously plastic the floor and furniture, but you can catch nearly 90% of all the falling "popcorn texture" when you scrape by simply having the lid to a case of printer paper. Turn the lid upside down so it acts like a tray with raised edges, and keep it relatively close to the ceiling when scraping, all the texture falls directly into the tray. Very easy and kept mess at a minimum.

I might have to try this in a small room and see how it looks. The thing that has kept me from doing this throughout my house is the PITA of masking all walls and floor. I was going to go back with a knock-down finish on the ceiling anyway, so if I can dry scrape it and make it look like something, that might be the answer.
