Please Help;

I want to get rid of my popcorn ceiling is there any easy trick to it? I was thinking of just scraping the ceiling with a large scraper. Someone said to spray it first with water but that sounds even more messy what do you guys think? Thanks Kim

Scraping and elbow grease is what I would try.

Use an garden atomizer that you find at ********** to moisten the popcorn. Spray it, let it sit 5 minutes and spray again. Use a 6" paint scrapper and the popcorn should come off very easy. The job is a bit messy but if you try to dry scrap the popcorn off the ceiling you will tear up the drywall and then you will have a harder time spackling (plus old popcorn was known to contain asbestos). Once ll popcorn is down, put a skin coat of spackle, sand, prime and paint.
