I have a job coming up where the previous painter sprayed the interior trim but did not mask the walls. Any suggestions on how to paint the walls without that area next to the trim showing a different texture? Not really wanting to re-texture.

"Catch up" the millage on on the rest of the wall

Good suggestion bconley. He sprayed so heavy I was thinking of rolling a coat of block filler before priming and painting.

dont use blockfiller unless the walls are block. if the trim paint buildup is as heavy as you describe, just float out (patch/ skim) the heavy edge into the smooth wall.

why don't you

use or rent a drywall big wand sander from HD for like $50 for 4 hours, you will be able to smooth that out in about 10-20 minutes.
