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.

I wanna lighten the rooms up.
thoughts?

If you're painting over paneling, hit it with a coat of Kilz first to seal it in, then primer/paint so the stain doesn't bleed through.

I've also seen guys mud the ribs to smooth coat the wall for a quick, cheap fix.


I've helped cobble a lot of rentals over the years and that is the type of stuff we did to update a house but low cost.

Are we talking about the typical smooth finished paneling?

B-I-N is about the best primer out there for that, you can throw that stuff onto pretty much anything and it will stick. But it's shellac-based and kinda hard to work with.

Original Kilz is the very good, but you'll be short a few brain cells by the time you're done with it. Use a respirator and have as much ventilation as possible if you go that route.

If it was me, I'd use the Kilz2, it's water based and much more pleasant to work with, but it's just not as good as the original. Make sure the surface is as clean as possible and thoroughly scuff if it's glossy.

And yes, I always used flat paints for all ceilings unless a customer specified otherwise, and even then I tried to talk them out of it.

It has a lot of 'bite' to it, so it grabs on to the surface and is hard to spread out. But that bite is what makes it a great primer. And buy cheap rollers and brushes because you'll be throwing them out when you're done.
