Texture on Interior Concrete Wall


I own a concrete block home and the interior walls are concrete with a texture finish. We removed some custom cabinets in our kitchen and we're going to be replacing them with open shelves. The problem is this area wasn't textured because the cabinets had a backing so it's just bare concrete. I have primed it with Kilz but now my wife and I want to replicate the texture some how ourselves. I thought of trying the Behr roll on texture but I think it might have too much texture. Any idea what product/technique would be best?

Current Texture:

There is a spray can of texture ( not popcorn) that might come close at the box stores. Check them out.
Then it might take a few coats of paint to even it out.

I think as far as the spray cans go, it probably comes closest to orange peel. I thought of using that stuff but thought it might be a pain. Since that just sprays the texture, what would you guys recommend to put on first to even out the texture of the concrete vs the previously textured surface. It seems like I need to apply I thin coat of something to even everything out then put on a orange peel type texture.

Maybe show a pic of the bare stuff so we can see what you're up against

They may have applied a coat of masonry block filler.

I just googled block filler and it sounds like a good idea to apply that before the texture to even everything out. The only issue is I've already painted over the block. Can I still use the block filler? The Behr product says not to use over oil or latex paint.

Here is the picture of the difference between the texture and bare concrete wall. The bare area is on the left, where the cabinets used to be.

Looks to me like it might just be a heavy paint put on with a deep nap roller and instead of texture it's just stipple from the roller cover.

Could be... What time of paint do you think they might have used?
