We tore down the basement wall, and it left a big mess we had to fix.  We have had people come and texture our walls in the past, but we haven’t been satisfied with their work.  My husband and I decided to do it ourselves this time.  Jeff has always done the walls on his own.  Fairly simple.  He put up new drywall, mud, and used the orange peel texture spray found at Home Depot.  The ceiling was another matter entirely.

We had a funky texture on the ceiling that couldn’t be matched with the texture rollers, so we got some mud, and paint scraper, and went to work.  It was so much easier than I thought it would be. I put the mud in random patterns, let it dry then sanded it smooth.  Now that it is primed and painted, you can’t even tell there was a wall there or a hole in the ceiling.  It looks super great, and blended right in.
