Stoner, you say you hated literature... yet you can inject humor in the form of spoofing on Shakespeare? And you're comfortable with the term "run on sentences". Your spelling kind of sucks, yet your sentence structure and variance suggest that you would make a very interesting and compelling writer.

Humm. M'thinks you simply might not want to apply too much effort to paying attention to the mechanics of the keyboard.

Decoder ring....and Tylenol.

Would textured walls be harder to repair if future drywall patch jobs were necessary?

Not really. Especially if it is your own texture you are trying to match, and not a stranger's.

You don't have to texture a thing. Its a personal look

Texture is not hard to clean if you use semi gloss paint.

I texture everything..........I love knockdown. It looks great with a faux paint. Instead of making a bathroom plain, make it unique and give it some style. It's your house, so do whatever you please.

Texture does however cover all the joints that will be visible if you dont give a slick finish.

No matter who does the texture, a patch is not always easy to match. Thats why there are PROFESSIONALS that do it for a living.

For a professional to say its easy to match a patch, well that because they are professional. for someone that isn't, it is not easy,and i don't care if you did the work yourself or not.
