sounds like a fad that came from lazy drywall guys not wanting to mask straight lines when they shoot popcorn ceilings

Question re. painting walls & ceiling with smooth trim alongside popcorn ceiling *pic


when doing the border just mask the walls like you normally do. it works out really good with 2 guys. one guy spraying and the other guy loading the hopper and going around with a taping knife scraping off the texture to make the border. i swear every second house in town has ceilings this style. it was more of a late 80s early 90s thing to do but lots of ppl still like it and i have redone houses in ceilings to match what they had before after water damage. A buddy of mine gutted the house he bought and had me do all the new drywall and he had me do this type of ceiling. i think alot of the older style will be coming back. i think wallpaper will make a big come back and carpet!
