Keep up. I'm not going into depth with these instructables! Time is of the essence! Check out all 6 to see how the transformation went.
Step 1: Tape
Tape off ceiling and leave bottom of tape free.
Step 2: Plastic
Ass you go roll the tape up and slip plastic under.
Press firmly on the tape to ensure no leaks.
Step 3: Pull & Seal
Pull the plastic down and clingbit to the wall. seal any seems with tape.
Step 4: Mud
Grab a bad or bucket of joint compound and mix with water to desired consistency
Step 5: Roll or Spray
Now just roll or spray compound onto the ceiling.
I prefer to spray. Rolling works best for closets.
If you roll you will need to knock the texture down with a puddy or a knockdown knife.
Step 6: Prime & Paint
Apply sealer primer combo in first coat.
If it does not absorb apply paint.
Now onto the next project.
