    You can also try crackle-finish medium that should be applied over the base coat.

    You can use silica sand mixed with the paint to create a texture.

    10 parts paint to 1 part sand

    That depends on the texture of your walls, just I did to my wooden type of door, a natural wood, slightly rough but when painted with quality paint it gives me good and unique result. By the way, I got the door at http://caldwells.com/, and those textured are best for repaint for wall as well.

    Creating a texture look for the wall can be done at home. My brother has recently renovated his home. The palm beach window and door and the walls painted with new texture paints add a new beauty to the house.
    You can use the techniques like faux plaster, suede walls, nap rollers and masking tapes for making new textures on the wall.
