painting or knock down... which comes first

I am in the middle of some home projects (DIY bombs according to my husband), my drywall patches are almost finished, so I am close to the next step. I plan to primer all of my rooms, but then am not sure if I sould focus on the knock down (for ceilings) or paint (for walls) first. When I had guys come in and give me bids, they were talking about covering all the walls and floors w/ plastic. I think it would be best to do my ceilings and then paint... but want to know what you think. I can see pros and cons to each. Thanks in advance!!!

If your talking about spraying texture on your ceiling I would definitely do that first - it makes quite a mess.

Go buy a box of painters plastic at Home Depot or Lowes and tape the walls and floor off. That way when your done spraying the texture, you can just pull the plastic down and roll it all up. Just the texture flaking off the plastic can be messy

Get all of your patching, sanding, textureing, priming, done before you begin painting
