I've just recenlty puchased a house and it has been recently renovated. Its a modern house with solid wood floors and all white ceilings and walls.

The problem I have is the people who did the reno have used the wrong roller and if you look closely you can a stipple effect all over the whole house. Granted you can't tell until you get up close but we are now looking at changing from white to a colour and I would like to get rid of this.

I got a quote from a plasterer to render all the walls but lets just say I can't afford to go down that route. I've also approached a commercial sander who sands plaster but he tells me that the sander doesnt do paint because it clogs up the paper.

Has anyone come across this before and have a solution for me?? It would be greatly appreciated!

Here is an idea if you are trying to save money and don't mind doing it yourself.
Purchase a 8" or 10" drywall blade. Run the blade over the entire wall several times applying light pressure. Doing this will remove some of the texture.
Purchase some easy sand drywall compound and mix in a small amount of water to thin down.
This will probably take 2 coats. The first coat will fill in the lower areas and the 2nd coat will finish it off.
Don't apply real heavy. Between coats you can scrape any ridges off with your drywall blade. When compound is completely dry you can sand with a fine paper.
I have done this several times and it works pretty well.
Hope this was helpful
Good luck
