    We are currently doing one room at a time in our home - covering the ceilings with beadboard. This is our breakfast nook:

    It's better but messy to remove the popcorn, but the alternative is to cover with sheetrock or bead board.

    The best and cheapest way to get rid of your popcorn is not to cover it up but to remove it. The fastest way to remove it is to get a spray bottle and fill it with warm water and spray a section of it to get it wet and let that soak in a little while and then take a wide putty knife and scrap it off. It will come off easily and after it is all striped off come back and paint it with any color paint you want.

      John - I did that in several of our smaller rooms but this is the living room - dining room, kitchen and rec room. All joined together! Thanks for your info.
