To do this type of texturing, you'll need a compressor, a texture spray gun, texture material, and a semi-flexible plastic or metal (round the corners). All of this is available at most building centers such as Home Depot. The texture material may even be joint compound thinned a bit with water. Experiment on a closet wall to find the right recipe of water and joint compound, air pressure and gun nozzle size. Spray from floor to ceiling, ceiling to floor without stopping, use even strokes. The gun spatters the texture material out of the gun onto the wall. After seting for 15 - 30 minutes (depending on temperature and humidity) the material on the wall should start to 'set'. Use the plastic to slightly scrape the surface to remove the peaks, leaving the appears of the popular knockdown texture. (I also like the look of the wall texture without knockdown)

This technique is relatively easy and can cover a many flaws on walls - just keep spray
