My walls and ceiling have a knocked-down texture thats been painted
several times, so that the texture has lost the crisp edges and looks,
well, like it's been painted several times.
Is there a way of removing texture without damaging or replacing the
Thanks a heap,
Just did a 3rd area of the walls you describe. Skim coat, sponge sand,
skim coat again, sponge sand, etc. until you have it smooth. Prime it.
Must be primed since mud will soak up all the paint. After priming, remud
what's showing defects, sponge sand, prime those areas.
Real PITA. Dusty. Maybe it's because I suck at mudding. I watched a team
of French women pros do an entire house. Never used any type of sanding.
Perfect. 15 years later - still perfect. Pissed me off!
