Lumpy bumpy drywall mud

I have a bathroom with the lumpiest walls in the world. I think the previous owners used drywall mud to attempt a venetian plaster look. Unfortunately it doesn't look like venetian plaster, it looks like a badly frosted cake!

Got any ideas on how to smooth it out? Will sanding work?

You could sand it or add another layer of mud and make this one smooth.

IMO a skim coat of mud followed by a light sanding would be the easiest fix.

Skim coat and then lightly sand.

Trying to sand a painted wall is very difficult.
