sand or skim coat bumpy wall texture?


I have a house the is about 60+ yrs old that has walls that have been painted over and or replaced thru out more than a decade is my guess.

The wall that is in question "sand or skim coat" appears to be plasterboad that has a "pseudo popcorn" well, bumpy texture applied to match the existing plaster walls.

Without getting this tested for asbestos, my guess is that the bumpy texture on the plaster wall should be left alone? it appears to be much older. And, the plasterboard wall can be sanded or skim coated then sanded?

Once there's paint on a wall, sanding becomes a difficult job. I'd go for skim coating.
