How to paint over faux troweled plaster glazed walls?
I have "Tuscan" style hand troweled plaster (I assume plaster??) textured walls throughout my kitchen. Best I can tell, this was done over top of wallpaper (home built 1990) and probably done about 10 yrs ago (??). Looks like there is a glaze over the walls to get the dark brown color in the depressions.
I'm not really digging the Tuscan vibe, and am struggling to redo the kitchen w/ these walls! I don't want to tear out and redo drywall, and I don't want to try to sand down the finish and smooth out. The texture itself doesn't bother me (it appears to be professionally well done) but the color does. So...
How much success would I have to repaint over this?? What type of paint?? Would I think do a similar glazing again? Would it look odd if I didn't glaze the low points??
Anyone have any pics of this type texture walls painted to look anything BUT Tuscan? Trying to figure out if it's realistic that I can keep the texture but change the paint (and the vibe) such that it doesn't look like a bad band-aid to a formerly Tuscan kitchen. (which, BTW, really is the only thing Tuscan about my kitchen...)
I really appreciate your help!!!
