In that room I used a paint texturizer in that room with one of those loop rollers and a trowel to flatten. It looks OK (especially with flat paint) but I'd like it to look a little more professional in the entry hall/dining room. The rest of the house that is not papered has what looks like a mop-press type pattern. I'm not crazy about it either - not quite smooth enough.
My question is this - what is a relatively easy method to texture and what material is recommended that would come out looking a little more professional? I've checked various websites (just like the textured paint) - it comes out looking fine when THEY do it, but some are obviously easier than others.
And yes, I realize a professional could do it best, but I've more desire and time than money these days.
