I haven't been a fan of glitter since clear glitter nail polish was all the rage in, what, 8th grade?
It's especially unwelcome on my ceilings. And it's made itself at home in about half the rooms on the first floor, as well as hallways.
IT HAS TO GO!
Last night we took two car loads of boxes to "the homestead" and got a sample of the popcorn. There's a company in Montana that will test samples for asbestos for $35. For that price, I say it's totally worth it to be sure we won't be inhaling that awful stuff that could give use crazy awful diseases. Boyfriend initially said not to worry, but I worry. There are plenty of times when I through caution to the wind, but not when I can take such a simple step to prevent catastrophe.
My co-worker wrote an editorial about removing popcorn ceilings on the same day we closed on the house. Someone put popcorn ceilings in his turn of the century house, which makes the awful stuff that much more offensive. My editor also recently removed popcorn ceilings so I'll have lots of expert advice.
Today I'll mail off the sample to make sure we're in the clear on asbestos and as soon as I know for sure, I'll be up there scrapping away to get what looks like 8th grade glitter nail polish off my ceilings!
