I had a guy come out to give an estimate for removing the popcorn ceiling from our (really big) living/dining room. He wanted $600. DH said, no way, we'll do it ourselves.
So okay I scraped it all off, never mind the mesothelioma, it takes twenty years to kill you and I'm old anyway. Now the entire room - heck the entire house - has nasty white dust all over and I'm out of steam. I understand the next step is to sand the ceiling?? Holy Crap.
Assuming I get that done, is it ok to then use one of the combined primer/paints or do I have to do a coat of primer and then a final coat of paint?
Michelangelo didn't work this hard on the Sistine Chapel ceiling!
