    Currently painting the interior walls of the house, but one wall is very bumpy. As in the drywall that was put in almost seems warped and when painting down with the roller you could feel the bumpiness, making the coats very uneven.

    Does anyone know the solution to painting these kinds of walls other than to try sanding the whole wall down?

    There are different roller naps you can use. You have to find one deep enough to press into the recesses.
