How to get rid of textured (popcorn) walls
Hello there! If you’re like me, you’ve got an older home from the ’60s-’80s that’s got an ugly textured wall. Some folks have walls that are heavily textured and then there are those with light texture or popcorn texture on their walls. In either case, I found a great guide on how to deal with this ugly mess over at SawDustGirl that I highly recommend.
After watching the video and going through the guide, it took us about 4-5 layers of “skim coating” before we saw some meaningful coverage of the texture. Make sure to get extra gallons of joint compound so that you don’t have to stop mid-way to go to your local home improvement store.
