    What does the ceiling look like after you remove the popcorn? Do you have to do anything to the ceiling afterwards?

    Are popcorn ceilings the same world wide, I tried to scape off our bathroom ceiling and all it really did was take the skin off my knuckles so we had to remove and replace it with new gyprock. This stuff is hard like concrete. Do you put something on first to soften it, then scape it off? We have a large lounge room to do as well, it would cost a small fortune to replace.

    The picture is a little blurry, is the bag attached with tape?

    You don't want it too wet otherwise you will wet the drywall under the popcorn and it will be easy to damage it. Just try it ! Spray, wait, scrape. It is doesn't slice off, spray some more. If you can figure out how to use a computer and post on this forum, you'll figure out how much to spray quickly. Plus, there are numerous YouTube videos on removing popcorn ceilings that you can watch.

    Our house is about 35 years old (post asbestos). When I decided to remove the popcorn ceiling, I couldn't believe how easy it was. Sprayed small amount of water and used a wide blade. I thought it would take some elbow grease to scrape it off - - nope. My first scrape (with elbow grease), I almost took off some drywall and fell forward. It is very messy - the big home stores have inexpensive paper coveralls with hood and wear protective goggles (my glasses didn't keep it out of my eyes).
