what to do after removing popcorn from ceiling


I just started remodeling my house. I was shown how to remove popcorn from ceiling and was amazed how easy but LOT of cleanup. Now my issue is what to do next?? There are lot of information on websites but they seem to be conflicted. I am stuck on what to do next in preparation for painting. Can anyone give me what the best way to do?. Thank!

All depends what your taste is. I myself prefer knockdown ceilings with smooth walls. Depending on how chewed up the ceiling is knockdown does hide imperfections. You can always skim & sand the ceiling smooth.. Taste, research, pros & cons is howI make a decision.. Good luck...

Next thing to do is to go to the pub and celebrate.

While you are there, the next step will come to you.

Just remember to keep putting one foot in front of the other.
