The very first thing we did in our house was scrape the popcorn ceilings. It's pretty easy to do, just very messy, hence the shower cap I'm wearing. Isn't this a glamorous look for me?!!
I used my mom's garden sprayer to saturate the ceiling with water. The trick is to really soak the ceilings, and some of the popcorn falls off on its own without any scraping!
Sam was very dusty after sanding the ceilings!
Sam's parents and aunt visited, and they were a huge help! His parents painted the living room windows and Aunt Margie washed the windows in the front of the house. My mom and step-mom washed the windows in this room. My parents painted this room. I don't know where we would be without the help of our family!
