Many moons ago (19 years) Hubby and I moved to a house with popcorn.
( acoustical ceilings).
We planed to remove it when we got new carpet. Yay! In mid January I selected this.
Then I started the work. Now the question has been was it hard? No. Messy? Some what. I scraped it into a box lid and then dumped it directly into plastic bags. Most of my ceilings came off dry.
I only had to wet it where the tape/mud was.
Now for painting. One coat of primer and I can still see the tape/mud lines.
So two coats of primer and I stopped taking pictures. From here it became a few hours of panting every day till the ceiling , walls, crown molding, and base boards were done.
Finley it’s carpet laying day.
I will only say that if your one job is to measure square footage you would think “he” could have gotten it right. Half the house got laid on a Monday… the rest got laid the following Saturday.
Here is my entry way. The half way point. See the old carpet.
Yay, it’s all in. Can you say shades of cream.
My “new” house. From the front door.
Around to the living room.
Towards the dining room.
And from the other direction.
