I checked online for some anecdotes and lessons learned, but I'd like to hear experience from the hive mind!
I'm selling my condo, and I am bypassing removing the popcorn ceiling. I would like to clean, dust, or paint it. There are places where it's clearly dusty/linty, and there are a few spots that need re-painted. It's not the real heavy-duty textured, more of the smaller, finer texture (the "orange peel"?).
I know that making textured ceiling moist can make it loosen and sag. Would paint make it do that? Ideally, I'd like to paint over all of it to freshen it.
Any one have any luck with any of these? If you've painted and it worked, can you share your tips, please?
Thank you very much!
