Ceiling tile OVER popcorn ceiling? Anyone tried this?
We are remodeling our kitchen and removing soffits and a short wall. Our ceiling is a popcorn texture, so there will be a gap where the wall is, and also new ceiling will need to be added where the soffits are as there is currently no ceiling in the soffits.
Rather than remove all the texture in the kitchen, hall, and 1/2 bath, I am considering tiling over the popcorn. It is not a heavy texture, and it is pretty stable. I'd like to scrap off the high peaks with a quick pass, then use nail up ceiling tiles over the whole thing. There are plenty of glue up options for this, but to me that does not seem like a good idea. Wouldn't the glue loosen the popcorn?
This house was built in 1988 so I am not concerned about asbestos.
Has anyone tiled over their popcorn ceiling? Would you do it again? Pics?
