    Sweep the popcorn ceiling and it will knock off a bunch of those "popcorns".

    I hate pop corn ceilings, nothing easy about them. This house was built about the time they stopped using asbestos in popcorn ceilings. When we bought it I sent a sample off for testing, at least it came back negative for asbestos.

    i have not looked it up yet, but it sounds fun... :)

    to me walls that are smooth are just asking for trouble at some future point. i painted this whole house when they first built it, plus i redid this room when the ex-step-dad took off and left it a mess with holes/marks in the walls. it's all egg shell white and stained cedar trim. which works great for reflected light but the walls and ceilings show any bit of any imperfections.

    Some roll on the mud, the use a stomp brush to texture it. I did both, then used a blade to create hi-lo texture with flat/smooth and texture.
