I am remodeling several rooms in my house. About 30% of the sheetrock has been removed and the walls and doorways reconfigured. The rooms were originally spray textured a light orange peel, then latex painted. As I tape and mud the seams from old work to new, I am wondering how successful I will be trying to spray new texture (hopper gun and compressor) and blend into the old work. The thought of scraping down all the old walls and ceilings and starting from scratch is not very appealing.

Anyone has success with this?
