First off, What kind of texture is it? Sounds like Popcorn texture. Is it?

yes it is...and I know it is painted on as the piece that came off left an ugly yellow behind.....I know it probably needs to be all scraped off but how does one do that? then can I just put the primer with the moisture barrier kilz and then just repaint.?

Could the yellow be a water stain? To get the stuff off: 1) Cover evrything in the room w/ plastic. 2) Get a pump garden spayer and wet ceiling only. Depending on the size of the ceiling, you might just want to do 3' x 4' sections so it doesn't dry before you get to it. 3) Next you need to get a 4" or 8" putty knife and a two strap sanding/dust mask. Start scraping the wet area after it has soaked in for a few minutes. (you might need to do this procedure twice if the popcorn was painted). Yes, I would use the oil based Kilz for stain blocking before painting. Depending on the condition of the ceiling underneath the popcorn you might need to do a little mud work. Typically popcorn is not sprayed in bathrooms because of the moisture issues in bathrooms. S.o, hopefully it wasn't sprayed in there to cover something up. Good luck! Let us know as it progresses

textured ceiling


thanks very much....I do know that the yellow by the light was the previous paint scheme as the walls were the same color before we added some wall panel coverings .......I think doing it ourselves small portions would be the best and thanks for telling what to do . I do appreciate it and will send you all an update....thanks again.....
