    Default Matching Drywall Texture

    I have a really funny drywall texture that I need help to be able to match the technique. The house was built in 1993 in Houston, TX. Name:  photo.jpg

    Sorry, but my only comment is 'lots of luck'! Maybe someone has the magic answer, but texture is very dependent on the installer. Trying to replicate it can be really tough.

    I would generally call that "orange peel" texture, and there are spray-textures available in that. But texture is very much a one-of-a-kind thing when done, and matching is an art form. You might look for a skilled drywall repair person.
