Help! I have just drywalled my ceilings and now I want to blow in the popcorn ceiling. Is it easy for a beginner or should I hire a pro? I also don't know how to get started with the task to do it myself. What would a pro charge for about 600 sq. ft. of basement ceiling to do it for me? Thanx!!

I didn't know they still installed popcorn ceilings. Everyone I know with them always wants to get rid of them! Sorry that's no help...

go to home depot and buy a couple of cans of spray popcorn texture. I am a paint contractor and when we patch a ceiling, this is what we use. The paint department in home depot will know what it is.

If you are dead set on popcorn, this is the stuff to use-- you can do it yourself if you have a quick stroke of the hand-- very easy. But, Popcorn is not in anymore-- just tape and float it-- sand it smooth and enjoy your flat ceiling! We scrape ALOT of popcorn off ceilings because people no longer want that look.
