The walls of my house have that swirled/textured finish, and I hate it. So, Id like to install drywall over the existing walls so that I can get a smooth finish.

My problem is that the walls Id like to cover have doorways (of course) and windows. When I pulled the trim off of the walls, a problem struck me: when I put 3/8 drywall over the existing wall, the door frame will now be recessed 3/8, instead of flush with the wallcovering, which it is now. This will not only look strange, but Im not sure how to put trim over what would result. I assume this will also be the case for the windows.

Anyone have any suggestions how to handle this? Many thanks for any hints or suggestions!
