Looking for some advice here. Have a 1200 square foot (2bd/1ba) house that has primarily lathe and plaster walls, yet we have made a considerable amount of drywall repairs after the electricians finished installing new recessed lights, recepticles, light switches, etc.
The original plaster walls are not textured, yet they have multiple layers of roller brush “texture” as the walls have seen a lot of paint over the last few decades. Need less to say when priming the new drywall and the original plaster, its pretty obvious to see where new and old are.
I could purchase/rent the equipment to texture, although I’m not sure if that would even cover. Skim coating all the walls to a smooth finish is my preference, yet I’m not sure if that would be too cost prohibitive. Perhaps a kind of texture that can be applied along with the primer would be an inexpensive fix, yet not sure if that’s the way to go. I remember the forum was thumbs up on the D-Mix formula that someone came up with too. . .
