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.

Whacking the popcorn ceiling sounds like something to do with genital warts.

I didn't think I could do drywall either but it turns out to be super easy.
Everything you need is at Home Depot.

For the primer/sealer I highly recommend Windsor Bullseye. I personally think it seals better than Kilz, which I used exclusively until I tried the Bullseye. It comes in oil or water based as well. (I like the water cleanup so i try to use the water based whenever possible.)

You can get a solution to add to the water or use vinegar and dilute the water for spraying the ceiling. Then use an 8 inch knife to scrape off. Once you have it all off then do it for a second time and sand with a sanding pole.

You want to let it dry then prime the ceiling with a primer. I use Sherwin Williams Pro Prime it's water based, no need to apply an oil base primer unless you want to use respirators the rest of the way. I always add a couple squirts of black to the primer so it's gray and you can see imperfections easily. Plus when you spray your texture on you can see your pattern to keep it even.

Mud your imperfections, clean up with a sanding sponge, and start spraying texture on it.

You guys do realize that when you perform this sort of labor for yourself you are taking work away from people who are taking work away from Americans?

Don;t retexture. Just patch any bad spots, sand smooth and paint.

Never had a problem with popcorn ceilings but knock down ones do look nice. Taking the popcorn off is a huge mess, though.
