Covering Textured Wall Surface - How To Smooth It Over


Postby Gruntfuttock » Mon Sep 30, 2013 10:26 am

I want to smooth over the textured walls in a room. The texture is very pointed and sharp. What's the best method to use bearing in mind I'm not a plasterer. Thanks

if its as bad as you say its easier to hack it all off and dryline the wall, giving you a smooth flat finish
