Texture question

caminncNovember 20, 2011

I just took down wallpaper, sanded, washed and primed the walls with oil based primer. I used a 1/4" nap Prudy roller and the texture is a lot rougher than I expected. Will the finish coats of paint smooth out the texture or should I sand again? Thanks!!!

Keep sanding...OR...have the wall skim-coated to smooth.
Re-skimming NOW is a GREAT time to do it since wall is primed!

A good skim-job can add value to the home if it's done well.

You'll have to re-prime, but now you can use a Latex primer!
