We have removed popcorn from the ceiling and it now needs to be plastered. The crown molding in place is in perfect condition and we would like to leave it. Will it be possible to plaster the ceiling without the mounding getting messed up? Big thanks in advance!
Yes, it is more likely the crown molding would be damaged by removing it to refinish the ceiling than by leaving it in place (see Should I remove moulding before adding a plaster ceiling? and Can I install drywall on the ceiling, without removing crown molding?) It's fairly easy to leave it and tape off (or tape-and-plastic) to protect the molding while refinishing the ceiling.
