popcorn ceilings

I agree with Rob, but I just wanted to add one element of safety. If you remove the popcorn before painting, be sure to wet it before removing. First of all it does make removal easy, but most important is that many popcorn ceilings have asbestos in the popcorn mix (depending on the age of the house). If you wet the popcorn for removal, you will prevent the asbestos from getting airborn and going into your lungs.

Good luck
