popcorn ceiling


Am removing popcorn ceiling in a small bathroom, there is drywall underneath it. Does it need to be plastered before painting? I would prefer a smooth finish.

After you remove the texture, I would:


skimcoat the ceiling 1-2 light coats as needed (with drywall compound)

good light sand, prime and paint

A recent discussion on the same topic, touching on both wet and dry methods.
