Sounds more like fiberboard. It's what they use for cheap paneling.

I've seen where someone tryed to texture over it before in a chuch. It all fell off. Just to slick.

What about a good primer first?...or do you think I have to take it down. By the way you guys are so great, I really appreciate the advise!

I hate to see anyone texture anything for any reason, but what's the chance of going over it with 1/4 sheetrock, priming that then texturing it.

That is a great idea, I wanted to give the walls the old world look, ...it will stick out 1/4 of an inch where it meets the other wall, though...I guess a new corner bead is instore for me as well...oh well nothing is ever easy as it looks., Thanks again
