Matching interior wall and ceiling textures

Matching previously applied wall and ceiling textures can be a challenge and somewhat of an art. In some cases you will have to smooth and retexture a complete surface (wall or ceiling) to replace  it with something more consistent that somewhat matches it surroundings. That is mostly common in acoustic ceiling or (popcorn) ceiling removal.
 There are a few ways that interior textures can be applied and often times you will have to experiment with material mixture and technique to match previous
textures after drywall repairs.
  Hand drywall matching to a previous tradesman's technique  will usually start out with a little bit of trial and error testing. Sometimes it's good to have a small piece of drywall to practice on. Some textures are applied with a pan and knife or a hawk and trowel. Some drywall textures make use of special brushes or swirl patterns in the mud. Some texture's are rolled on which is called stipple texture.

Here are a few of the more popular hand applied textures that I have had to match
  • Hawk and trowel (interior/exterior
  • skip trowel
  • Santa-Fe texture
  • swirl
Here are some of the more common spray applied textures.
  • Splatter knock down
  • Orange peel
  • Popcorn
  • smooth wall
I have attached some recent before and after pictures addressing this topic... smooth wall being the most time consuming

Giving back to the people who support you in life is something that we should never forget to do. We must appreciate and treasure those that love and care for us in this life. It is hard to find people who will support and love you unconditionally. Having the support and love in this life from the people who you treasure the most is really heartwarming. We must always give them the love and support in order for them to continue on giving care and love for us.
