How to Get Rid of a Popcorn Ceiling

The Easy and Affordable Way to Cover a Popcorn Ceiling

If you own a home with popcorn ceilings, you've probably spent some time fantasizing about having them disappear. While you can find online tutorials for scraping off the textured surface, it's a tedious and incredibly messy endeavor.

For an affordable DIY alternative that also adds character, consider covering your popcorn ceiling with wooden planks!

After scraping off some of the popcorn ceilings in her 1970s French country home, Edith & Evelyn Vintage blogger Cindy decided to go the wooden-plank route, and the result is pretty stunning. Her only regret? Not doing it sooner!
