Today began the process of redoing the master bathroom. That means removing the popcorn ceiling. That also means dust everywhere.
Before I started, I had the forethought to seal off the master closet to minimize the dust invasion. Unfortunately, I was also in a hurry to get started, so I didn’t remove the ceiling light. That worked out ok, because I did the ceiling in two passes.
After the first pass, I had more than half of the ceiling done.
You can see there is attic access here, which is just a piece of drywall. The piece kept shifting as I tried to scrape it in place, so I took it down and scraped it on the floor.
The rest of the ceiling went smoothly as well. Tiny ceiling light is removed. Just a few nicks here and there when I was done.
Without the light soffit in place, it was easy to get at all the parts of the ceiling. Tomorrow is sanding and patching.
I already have the light fixture to go back in. It’s the smaller version of the light in the master closet. Unfortunately, Alico lighting doesn’t have anything similar for vanity lights. I may still buy the same brand just to provide consistency. There’s still some time. I’ll need to figure out how I’m going to wire the lights.
