Decorating: Removing a Popcorn Ceiling
Friday, my daughter bought her first home. A cute condo that needed a fabulous decorating touch and one fatal flaw!!!! A POPCORN CEILING.
Every where you looked... popcorn. Now a love to eat popcorn but hate it on the ceiling.
So we decided to remove it and here is how we did it.... spray the ceiling with warm water. It really helps if you wear some Coach sunglasses!!
Let sit a few minutes and then scrap off with wide scraper.
Don't forget to have your brother help you!!!
His birthday is today!!! He does have a handsome smile...
Also have your friends help..
Girls, got plaster?
Make sure you put plastic on the floor. It is a messy process.
I told you it was messy.... My daughter's boyfriend went in for a kiss.... no way dude.
Cover everything that can get popcorn on it.
And look at the final results.
A smooth ceiling.
It will need some sanding, a couple of fixes in the dry wall and paint.
The happy, tired, fantastically cute crew!!! Great jobs guys!!!
I was the food boss so when they came home... they all had showers, lasagna and cupcakes.
P.S. Happy Birthday Son... good luck on your final.
