Knockdown ceiling : My walls are orange peel..


will it look funny? Or should I spray orange peel on the ceiling to keep it consistent?

Same texture all the way around is best. Although many, many house have popcorn ceilings and orange peel walls -- including mine!

Yep, I've a popcorn/orangepeel house as well. I did a test spray on a piece of plywood and it came out pretty good. However, I worry that I'll end up with stalactites if I spray orange on the ceiling. Is it a matter of getting the consistancy (currently pancake batter), air pressure, and gun settings correct?

I just finished taking down popcorn ceiling and respraying texture in one of my rooms. I used a medium nozzle on the sprayer, 25 psi on the compressor and pancake batter consistency joint compound.

Thanks! That was EXACTLY what I needed to see! I'll be spraying tonight when I get home. I can't wait!
