There is always paintable flat wire.

No crawl space or basement -- concrete slab. The attic is above the second floor.

One day I will get past my avoidance of doing drywall work.


I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

For me (I'll do any construction work, but) Drywall work = Sub-contractor!

Drywall is ok, except for the ceiling, that's a major PITA, especially if you're not pop-corning it. I must have spent close to 12 hours just on my theatre room ceiling alone and it's still not perfect, but the fact it's flat and black I think it was doomed from the beginning

Instead of popcorn, you can apply a layer of sand-textured paint to the ceiling. It looks a lot nicer than the popcorn and hides surface imperfections pretty well. I did this in my living room because there was a visible seam running across the middle and I sure wasn't going to re-drywall it. The texture really did a good job hiding it. I used this Behr paint, applied it to the ceiling with a looped texture roller, then knocked down the peaks with a wide plastic drywall knife. It looks close to the picture below, but I moved the trowel mostly in the same direction, so my ceiling looks a bit less busy than this.

I like a knock-down ceiling in place of popcorn.
