Leveling my walls to paint them
pic of wall texture
I removed old kitchen wallpaper with a steamer but the walls still have some unevenness to them.
The walls are now kind of shiny and do not have a true flat even wall finish.
Before painting what should I do about the texture as I tend to like the look of a flat wall surface and leveling the walls seems like too big of a job for me to undertake.
What are your suggestions? thanks.
Leveling a surface (skim-coating) can definitely tend to be a very dusty labor intensive process.
Unfortunately skim-coating is the only alternative (that I know of) for getting ones walls smooth and flush.
You could hire a dry-waller (sheet rock pro) to do the work for you or use this texture page and find a texture technique to cover up any of the walls imperfections.
No matter what you choose to do be sure to apply a primer prior to painting.
