The Pain of Popcorn
When Tammy originally picked ceiling colors, her brother triple checked the colors. He warned, “Once the popcorn goes on the ceilings, it is there to stay. I mix the popcorn and paint together to help it stick, and it is a pain to redo.” Now, we understand why he was so adamant about colors!
After a disappointing leak sprung in the master bathroom shower about a month ago, Tammy's brother had to cut a hole in the ceiling. He made a few repairs to the one piece of plumbing we never touched and waited for about two weeks to make sure nothing leaked. He removed everything smelly and rotten, sprayed the area with mildew killer, and let it dry thoroughly.
He only needed to replace one piece of sheetrock, but had to respray the entire ceiling. That meant he and his partner had to pick off all the little pieces of popcorn clinging to it. This job was tedious, but very necessary and worth the effort.
Here is a shot of the repaired ceiling and they did a masterful job. The casual observer would not be able to spot where they replaced the sheetrock.They still need to finish the hole in the masterbathroom wall now that Tammy has finally bought the right color of paint.
