As I would rather not figure out, rent, try to texture on my own was thinking the stuff you could put in your paint would be cool, if it works!
Thanks from a weekend DIY'er!
If I'm reading you right, you're wanting "some" texture on your walls, in order to hide imperfections - yet you don't want to rent a texture sprayer.
I think it's probably a good idea to not put down heavy texture in the bathroom.
If this were my project, after getting as much of the wallpaper adhesive off as possible, I'd prime it with GARDZ Primer. After that I'd try to skim-coat any surface imperfections.
I've used Sand Texture in primer, on occasion, and am really not a fan. You've gotta mix it constantly, it's tough to get on evenly, and it doesn't really do all that much for you. You can see surface imperfections through it.
I've also, on rare occasions, mixed some drywall mud into my primer, then used a 3/4" nap roller cover to give it a little texture. That has worked fairly well for me.
In the end, however, nothing is going to produce a better end result than a good smooth surface.
