My house was built four years ago by a creative home builder. I live in a planned unit development so most of the neighborhoods are cookie cutter houses. While our neighborhood has unique designs, the finish is all similar. I want to backdate your house so the finish is more in tune with the interior architecture. Specifically, I want to replace the orange peel texture on the drywall with a smooth finish. What is the best route? I assume I can just skim it with sandpaper to make sure there are no high spots then trowel on a thin coat of plaster. Can it be that simple?
