Randomly one night after the kids went to bed last week I started on it. The guest bedroom that we scraped took about 45 minutes so I figured this might take an hour and a half since its a larger room. I looked at the clock when I started 9:00pm. Prepping is a big deal since you spray the ceiling and all the wet mud falls to the floor (I nixed the specialty popcorn scraper tool from the store because it chewed up the ceiling in our other room so bad). I finished prepping at 10:30. About 10 minutes after I started removing the popcorn I realized I needed help from Cameron if I was going to sleep that night. We finished at 1:30am...just with scraping.
The next day I puttied all the nail holes and anything else that needed it.
Friday night, I started to sand everything and only got about half way because I got tired.
Still working on sanding today. I'm trying to keep a positive attitude by telling myself it will all be worth it in the end...maybe if I say it enough times it will work :)
