So, we bought a house in Raleigh nc and original owners wall papered every sq inch of the house. Second owners removed most of it.. and yes, damaging the walls in the process. Thus, having to texturize the walls in a way I have never seen. I call it WTH wall texture. Anyway, when we moved in there was a ton of repairs needed in kitchen (not a short story either) fast forward...all the repairs are complete and done correctly! Ok, now it's time to paint. But I don't know what to do. I cannot match WTH texture that is on the wall already. It's almost like someone walked around with a paint brush and just started sweeping the walls while paint was still wet. THE TEXTURE IS HARD TO EXPLAIN. IT'S NOT SLIGHTLY RAISED. IT IS VERY ROUGH TO THE TOUCH. BUT IF LOOKING CLOSE YOU CAN SEE BRUSH MARKS I am so frustrated. So my question is....can I texture over a wall that already has texture? (Please tell me I can)I have been working on these walls for two weeks now. I have done all repairs by the book. So I hope that you tell me it's ok to do that because I am ready to finish this project! Honestly I don't want to skim coat either. Haha. Im ready....any suggestions?

Since it's so bad already, could you put up paintable wallpaper and paint over that?
