Remove popcorn ceiling
Warm water in a spray bottle to wet it down. Wide putty knife for scraping. Plastic tarps to cover flooring/walls.
Hi Steve: Boy are you adventurous! Anyway, this is a really icky and time consuming project, but here's how you do it:
I scraped mine off.
attach a scrapper to the end of a vacuum hose with ducktape (shop vacs work best) moisten the ceiling with a sprayer of warm water and let dry almost all the way. The stuff comes right off.
Moisten the ceiling, then vacuum?
