Popcorn ceilings were a trend in home design from the 1950s-80s, but like most things from that era, the trend has long since died. If you’re stuck looking up at the aftermath, don’t fret. Popcorn ceilings can be removed, albeit you have a little patience and a few hours to kill.
Finally, it’s time for the dirty work. Grab a garden hose and wet the ceiling, working in four to five feet squares at a time. Once sufficiently damp, scrape the material off with a joint knife. If it’s not coming off very easily, keep wetting it and using that muscle. You can fix any accidental holes with joint compound and a putty knife. When you’ve got as much off as you can, you’ll want to sand the area to smooth it out. And voila! Just like that you’re back in this century.
