Diane asked 10 years ago

We have primed our basement walls and want to stipple our ceiling. Is it better to stipple the ceiling first before we do our final painting? Or should we paint the walls first before we stipple the ceiling?

Stiple the ceiling first as you will unavoidably have some texture spatter on the walls.
