Texture questions??


Hey everyone,

I have a home built in the mid 1950's and it looks like drywall. My questions is with the original texture on drywall, when filling in nail holes and such, how do you get the original look of drywall back? I know fill and sand, but drywall have a slight texture to it.

Thanks,
Sellncars

Texture questions??


Sorry everyone,

After some reading on this board i think i found my answer. Walls look like an orange peel. This is a good site for different textures.
