Did you know that when you install a window unit, it needs to be angled, ever-so-slightly so that it drains to the outside? Small, tiny detail. Super, duper important.
Ok, so water drained onto the wooden floor. It then dripped onto the ceiling in our dining room and then the ceiling looked like this.
It just looks so fantastic, I'm sure the next owners of the house want this fantastically decorated ceiling, don't you think so?
Our realtor said the popcorn ceilings are fine. We agree. So, the next step was to paint. We decided on using Kilz, and the results are AMAZING! Here are some pictures of applying the first coat. The trick to painting popcorn ceiling in four easy steps:
- Use a paint roller meant for use on heavy texture
- Only roll in one direction (I'd suggest starting along the edge and then working inward)
- You get two passes, maybe three, until the popcorn starts falling on your head
- Let it dry for at least 6 hours (ideally overnight) before trying to apply another coat
