Posted in thread: Is this mold? on 03-08-2014 at 07:15 PM
Almost looks like you had a lot of moisture build up on the walls and it dripped down. Does not
look like mold. Is this a bathroom? If so, is there a vent used when taking baths and showers?

I had to do some popcorn ceiling blend-in when we did a remodel. I tried the spray products -
