    I have painted several popcorn ceilings, use a longer nap roller, some of the popcorn will come off so be sure to cover floors and furniture, if you are planning on keeping the popcorn ceiling use a good semi gloss paint, this will help seal the popcorn and the extra sheen will reflect light.

    My best friend just painted her popcorn ceiling 2 times! I told her to use the Kilz primer first and then put on paint. The paint really soaks up in the popcorn ceiling and it is very difficult to paint with the Kilz it seals it and the paint goes on beautiful all over it looks the same on the first round some of her ceiling just sucked the paint right in without the Kilz. It is more work but it is worth doing it right the first time than doing it again! Good luck!

    And, make as few passes with the roller as you possibly can. 2 light coats will be better than 1 heavy one.
