Removing texture from trim

Hi! this is my first post, I'm a long time listener first time caller.

These boards are great!!! I've been reading them for quit a while and have received lots of valuable tips. so Thanks!

I have a question: Is it possible to remove texture from trim without removing it?

It looks like somebody went wild with with one of those hopper things on the home we just bought. They sprayed every inch of every wall, including the window and door casings. needless to say, it looks terrible! Is there a good way to get this stuff off?


I've done some searches for this but didn't find anything, sorry if it has already been addressed.

thanks!

Welcome to the diy forums!

It should come off with soap and water plus a lot of elbow grease If it has been painted over it will be more difficult - sand what you can of the paint/texture off and the rest will probably wash off. If it sands down fairly smooth I'd skip washing and prime instead.
