texurize walls

Can anyone give me a quick lesson in texurizing walls? We are tearing out old cabinets and getting new ones. but the tearing out is messing with my wallpaper job. so i thought about texurizing the walls and just painting them. any help would be appreciated.

I doubt anyone could give a 'quick lesson' for texturing, but I will move this to the drywall guys who can help you better.

Texturing drywall is pretty much an artform requiring some special tools and techniques. The problems multiply if your trying to match an existing texture. You might be better off hiring someone who can match the old texture.

texure

ok maybe i'm asking the wrong question. i am getting new cabinets. the old ones had a sofitt over the top, but we took it down and want to leave that space open. i also am removing some wallpaper. i would like to paint these walls. don't i have to do something to the drywall before i paint it?

If the area isn't highly visible, don't bother texturing - just prime and paint.

First thing would be to make sure you get all the wallpaper off of the wall, and like Dave said, that area above the new cabinets isn't going to be noticed much so I'd just use a good primer and then repaint.
