Popcorn is for eating not for ceilings…
Popcorn ceilings, also known as cottage cheese and acoustic ceilings, were applied by spraying or painting on to ceilings in homes and apartments from the 1950s through the 1980s; they were particularly popular in the 60s and 70s.
Originally popcorn ceilings were considered a quick and easy way to finish ceilings in new construction and mask imperfections in the drywall; it doesn’t require any painting afterwards.
