Mike’s Guys: How Do I Refinish A Popcorn Ceiling Myself?


Photo Source

We recently shared a post on 3 options for getting rid of popcorn ceilings. There are a few different ways to approach it, including hiring a professional (like Mike’s Guys) or installing beadboard sheets over the popcorn for a cleaner look. Of course, if you have settled on the idea of tackling the project on your own, we thought it would be helpful to have a step-by-step guide explaining how to scrape and refinish your ceilings.

Before You Start…

 

As mentioned in our initial post, before you start scraping away, it’s important to test your ceiling for asbestos. Homes built prior to 1980 potentially contain this dangerous substance in the ceiling, which could be a hazard to your health if inhaled. You can easily scrape off a section and send the sample by mail to an asbestos testing lab for a small fee. If asbestos is present, it will be necessary to hire a company that specializes in removing materials containing the substance rather than trying to do it yourself! Read more

A Grand Prairie Kitchen Renovation with Farmhouse Charm

It’s always fun for our designers to look back on a completed project and remember how the space was the first time we saw it. In review of this kitchen remodel in Grand Prairie, our Senior Designer mentioned that “there were a lot of small problems within this space, but they were easy to solve.” Issues like lack of storage or counter space, poor layout, insufficient lighting, and dated aesthetic were among the list of things the clients brought up in our first meeting with them. They had a general idea in mind of how they wanted the new kitchen to look but were unsure of the specifics needed to get there. After talking through the detailed pain points the clients had with their existing kitchen, our designers got to work creating visual concepts for the renovated space. Read more

A Cozy Country Kitchen Reveal

Renovating a home to better meet the needs of the homeowner is a rewarding process in itself, but creating a little something special for the homeowner within the remodel is the icing on the cake! For our recent clients in Burleson, Texas, the little something special was a custom coffee bar that was included as a part of their kitchen remodel. Adding a coffee bar and morning sitting room was at the top of their wish list, which they expressed to our designers during their initial consultation. Our team wanted to be sure to bring their dreams to life while also making improvements to the overall aesthetic and functionality of the kitchen. Read more

The Medford Team Has Grown!

The Medford Team recently got a new team photo, including all of our newer team members! In case you haven’t had the chance to meet everyone, we’d like to take a minute to re-introduce the individuals that make Medford Remodeling the company it is today.

Our last team photo was taken in 2017. We are grateful to say that business has continued to come in and steadily increase since that time. To assist with our expanding client base, we have added 5 full-time employees over the last 4 years – each of them contributing a unique skillset and allowing us to provide optimum service as a whole. If there’s one thing (among the many things!) we take pride in, it’s the level of integrity, ownership, and dedication that each individual puts forth, clearly reflected in the quality of work associated with the Medford name. To say each team member is invaluable would be a great understatement, as we need one another to succeed! Read more

A 90’s Master Bath gets a Spa-Inspired Remodel

The kitchen may be the ‘heart of the home,’ but the master bath is the grand retreat – the place you go to unwind after a long day, to treat yourself for a job well done, or to give yourself some ‘me’ time after tending to kids or a busy schedule. There are few things more rewarding than a quiet, serene space to relax. This is one of the big reasons master bathroom remodels are so highly sought after among homeowners! Our recent client in Flower Mound, Texas, felt the same way. Her master bathroom was over 20 years old needed a renovation to better serve as an at-home escape. She came to us with hopes of recreating the space into something she had always wanted; something she could enjoy for years to come. Read more

A 1990’s Kitchen Gets a Modern Refresh

Our recent clients in Grand Prairie, Texas, had a lovely home built in 1999. The kitchen wasn’t in terrible shape, but the clients knew it was time to refresh the look and also make some modifications to improve functionality. Luckily, the size and layout were great, so not much needed to be done structurally to the existing footprint.

A very popular trend in kitchen design right now is two-tone cabinetry: when the upper cabinets and lower cabinets are different colors or stains. Our clients loved this idea and shared some inspiration photos showing a mixture of stained wood cabinets, white paint, and dark countertops. They also loved the high-end look of glass front accent cabinets, open shelving, and shaker-style cabinet doors. Read more

A Stunning Carport Addition in Arlington

Our recent clients in Arlington, Texas came to us with three problems that needed solving: they needed additional storage space, a place to keep their beautiful tropical plants during the winter months, and a covered area to park their vehicles. The existing 2-car garage helped some with these issues, but with their vehicles inside, the garage became overly crowded. After chatting with our design team and considering the options, utilizing the spacious driveway made perfect sense! The addition of a large carport would provide ample shelter for their 3 vehicles while also allowing their garage to be converted into a storage space and winter house for their plants. This concept checked all the boxes, allowing them to ‘kill three birds with one stone!’ Read more

A Glamorous Master Suite Addition & Garage Conversion

Our recent client in Colleyville, TX knew she wanted a glamorous master suite, complete with a full bath, double vanity, and walk-in closet. The only limitations for her project were the lot line and the pool in the backyard. With this in mind, the idea was to make the addition more linear along the back of the house; the bedroom leading to the large bathroom, and then the closet at the end. This layout allowed the client plenty of space for all the features on her wish list and fit within the allotted construction area. Read more
