Hi, sorry if this question has been asked/answered - I am very new to any DIY home projects so I appreciate any assistance!

The house I will be moving into has plaster on the bathroom walls. Old, ugly, textured (swirled) plaster.

How do I remove this without damaging the actual wall? I'm assuming I will need to do something - drywall? - after removing the plaster before I paint or refinish, that's ok. But I don't know how to remove the plaster....
