|The dining room...see its half popcorn, half drywall|
Its messy, but not difficult. OK, its really messy- and a little difficult We also did a little demo and removed the molding and the oh so aesthetic wooden beams from the sitting room. (Demo is pretty fun- it makes you feel powerful, ripping stuff out of the wall. April pulled one beam out all by herself- she is one buff lady!)
Well, safety first...put on your peeper protection (goggles) and face mask. (If home was sprayed with popcorn before 1980- get an expert to check it out there could be asbestos). Then, thoroughly soak the area that you will be scraping, then use a putty knife to scrape the popcorn texture off the ceiling. Dry wall should be underneath, which will lead us to Project #2- Texturing the Ceiling.
When you are done scraping, clean up your mess.....shop-vac, sweep, repeat!
