removing texturing from walls

I just moved into a house that has texturing on the entry hall walls that are plaster with hay. I have tried to remove the hay and plaster with a putty knife; however, it is an extremely tedious process. I have been doing this for about 4 months now and haven't even finished one-eighth of one wall. Any suggestions? Someone told me I should texture over it, but I am sure I will need to remove a lot of the straw/hay. Can this be done with an electric sander, and if so, how do I retexture over it?

An electric sander is a good idea, but I guess that your best choice is to apply stucco over the texture.

As you have a rough surface it will bond easily.

Also, I saw several ready to use Faux finish textures at Home Depot. They have also free brochures with easy DIY instructions

Good luck!
