Default Texturing Paint

What would be the best way to texture paint?

I have had to do a few patch ups from moving in and I want to get it as close as I can to the original dry wall.

I've found that they make a can of texture, which is like a can of spray paint, that has an adjustable dial to match almost any textured wall. I even use it to fill patched nail holes, and is completely unnoticeable. It runs about $11.00 at any big box hardware store, and big enough to do a few complete walls.

I had to cover a couple of spots. I just dabbed it with the brush. Looks alright, nothing to be excited about.

I've done that in low visibility spots, but never on places that are at eye level.

Got any pics as to what type of texture you are trying to match and the size of the area? Trying to determine what type of texture you have.

Most of those can repair things suck. If you have a decent air compressor you can buy a hopper gun for about 90 bucks at the HD not lowes as their gun sucks and it will match things like orange peel, knock down, popcorn and things of that nature. I would practice your technique on a sample board so you can work on getting a good match.

One of the most important things in the home improvement is to pay attention to the walls. On the wall, greatly increased the atmosphere of the room. You can use the walls of your home than paint or wallpaper them.
