I just purchased a place for my son in the town he is attending college. I discovered that the walls in living room and master bedroom were painted with this textured paint, feels like it has sand in it and is a very very dark colors (plum). What do I use to paint over this stuff. This is a big job I am afraid. Doesn’t have to be perfect this is for my 18 year old son but I don’t want it to look terrible either. I am sure that I will need to prime then paint… Will the paint even stick to this “sandy paint”. Should I use a certain paint? Like satin, flat?
