Question

Drywall Texture


Ok this may make me sound like an idiot but I am trying to be useful on my own. I bought my house almost 2 years ago and it is older than I am and the ceiling and wall textures just scream the 80s. So I am wanting to redo them both since I have to redo some walls when i change the mirrors out. Right now I have popcorn ceilings and the walls look like pretty much the same thing. So what can I do myself that will look good and be fairly easy for a begginner. Thanks a bunch!!!

Drywall Texture


Do a search on this site for "Popcorn ceilings". There are many past discussions regarding the way to scrape these and cahnge the texure surface.

Good Luck!

Look good and be fairly easy for a beginner. If you can come up with something to fit that criteria, You will be a very rich man or woman which ever the case may be.
