Removing Popcorn Ceilings After They've Been Painted?
My husband and I are starting to do some DIY remodeling to our house. It was built in the mid 80's and has popcorn ceilings, which I hate. He owned the house before I met him and painted over the popcorn ceilings, several times in some places. He doesn't want to do anything with them now because he thinks they will be too difficult to remove and he is usually right about these things, but I really hate them! I read some of the other popcorn ceiling posts and they all seemed to say, "If your ceiling hasn't been painted, do this..." Has anyone had any experience trying to remove popcorn after it's been painted, or know if it is even doable without wrecking the ceiling? If it is possible, do you have any suggestions, or know of any products that might help? (I am assuming that plain water won't cut it.) We are starting with a complete tear out of a small powder room in the next few weeks, so it would be the perfect time to try a ceiling in the smallest room of the house.
