How To Mask Popcorn Ceiling?

Good Questions

Q: The bedroom in my new apartment still has its ugly popcorn ceiling. Because of the vaulted ceilings in the rest of the apartment, the bedroom ceilings appear really low and it makes the hideous popcorn texture more prominent. I'm renting so I can't remove the popcorn ceiling, so my thought is to paint the ceiling a dark, flat color (maybe a dark gray-ish purple). What are some ideas to cover up/distract and minimize the popcorn ceiling?Sent by Katie
