What DIY Garage Wall Texture??


I'm in the process of finishing the walls in my garage. Is there a simple DIY way of adding texture? I don't don't have access to a texture rig, so what other options are there, skip trowel? Should I just add sand to the paint?

Mix some texture compound with water, roll it on.
Or you can skim coat or skip trowel. Or a light knock-down after the roller. Or a round brush for any, be creative: http://www.drywallschool.com/textures.htm
Be safe, G

The Valspar Sand Texture paint the Lowes carries works quite well... especially if you like spider webs and cob webs forming quickly in your garage.
