help need to paint over rough faux paint

The house we are moving into has faux paint applications on most of the walls. We are really concerned on how to paint over the living room wall which is a yellow undercoat with a metalic gold glaze. It has a textured finish. What do we need to do to repaint these rooms.

I would prime with a bonding primer, then skim coat wtih drywall compound, sand, re-prime and paint.

If you're just worried about the new paint sticking just wash the walls and use a good bonding primer. If it's the texture that's bothering you then consider having a new texture put on by a contractor. Most wallboard contractors and quite a few painting contractors can shoot new texture on the walls.
