The layers of paint don't matter assuming they aren't going to flake off. You can do any texture you want. just remember though that texture reacts very differently to any wall with a semi gloss paint. Knockdown slicks out and takes along time to absorb any water into the wall.

Just let us know if you have anymore questions
