I am looking for advice on how to proceed with a living room wall I am
The previous owners of my house had applied a heavy texture to the
majority of the interior walls of the house. Stucco is the best I can
describe it. A couple of the remaining walls were wallpapered.
I am working on one of the living room walls that were papered. After
removing said paper it is readily apparent why it was covered. Ugly old
sand texture paint and every drywall nail has seemed to have popped.
Two options I am considering:
A: rip out the old drywall and replace trying to replicate the left
inside corner texture and right outside corner texture.
B: Add a second layer of drywall with the same texture issues.
My question is which might be the lesser of the two evils? It's a plain
wall w/no windows. I really don't want to re-wallpaper or texture the
wall as all the others. Also, how would one go about taping the ceiling,
inside and outside corners which all butt up to a textured surface?
Some experienced insight would be greatly appreciated.
